Grand Canyon Photos

Here’s a few pictures from our recent trip to the Grand Canyon. The pictures cannot capture the vastness and enormity of this beautiful spot. Standing on the rim looking in the canyon is breath-taking.

I had not expected trees to grow in the canyon.  Many spots are barren, but in other places trees grew abundantly on the walls of the canyon.  Such was the case in this spot near Mather Point. You can also see the layers of red rock in this picture.

  We were surprised by the variety of color in the rock strata.  In contrast to the brilliant red rocks in the last picture, these rocks looked as if they had been bleached white.

 Our first elk-sighting was unexpected and exciting. We were walking around the rim near the Aavapai Point, when she walked out of the woods several feet from us.
