If the vastness of the land isn't humbling enough, you can look down at the stones underfoot and contemplate your momentary existence in time. The fossil layer is from about 300 million years ago, and the core of the mountains below that is granite dating back 1.5 billion years.
And if encountering all that immensity doesn't put things in perspective, I don't know what would.
