In a few hours I will be going to Viet Nam, the country of my birth, for about three weeks. During that time, I will not be posting or viewing and commenting on your posts. Until then, I hope you will enjoy the following shot of a glorious Grand Canyon sunset taken six years ago.
Too busy at work during the day, I could only go through my files this evening to find something to post. The following is a photo taken at Toroweap on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. This is a place very hard to get to, unless one has a big all-wheel drive truck or van. Even then, the last 3 miles over slickrock and sand is sheer torture on tires and suspension.
Once there, the view is exhilarating and there are places for overnight or weekend camping. It is definitely worth a trip if you like being out in the wilderness with nobody within sight for miles.
I took the following photo from the beginning of a new and small canyon still being carved out of the rocks by nature. Beyond that promontory jutting out from the right is the Colorado River canyon.
For this challenge, I looked hard and finally found this shot taken in June 2013 of Angel’s Window, a natural arch at Point Royal on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
There is an easy trail that allows you to walk to the top of the arch and have an amazing view of the Grand Canyon.
