Today I want to share just five photos from our recent trip to Grand Canyon National Park. The park had sparse crowds the first week of March. It almost felt as though we had this beautiful piece of our planet all to ourselves.
There are not enough words to describe my passion for this place. Maybe this is where my heart belongs. Legend has it a cook at El Tovar placed this rock in the wall so his sweetheart, a Harvey Girl, would see it each day as she left work. When you look across the canyon, there is Lookout Studio. One of six iconic structures designed by Mary Colter within the park boundaries.
Here is peek around the corner of Lookout Studio into the depths of the canyon.
During our visit, the skies presented a different portrait each day. This day it was overcast creating beautiful shadows playing tag among timeless geological formation.
It never gets boring photographing nature’s work. Love the texture of the trees, shaped by the elements and time. Truly a work of art.
Off in the distance you can see traces of Bright Angel Trail as it slowly winds it’s way down to the beauty of the Colorado River.
We were lucky to snag four nights in the canyon’s RV park the first week of March. We enjoyed every minute exploring one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
This is the year to Find Your Park. So many parks, so little time.
Wherever you rest your head tonight, happy trails.
