I see Whitman says "Colorado's canons" in "As Consequent Etc." and also the Spanish spelling "cañons" later in his notebooks.
I also know that in the state of Colorado the two were interchangeable for canyon or, as we see sometimes written in older literature, Kanyons, but I assumed Whitman was making a play on both cannon, canyon and canon (church law) when speaking of "Colorado's canons".
Are we simply to assume he was adhering to the anglicized spelling for cañon here or is there evidence to the contrary?
