Do you remember that movie about a Vacation starring Chevy Chase, the one where he and his family visited the Grand Canyon on their trip west? They drove all that way to get there, then after taking just a quick look he says something like: Well, there it is, then they drive away. With a view like that, you have to stop and smell the cigar smoke.
