Last Sunday afternoon the biggest storm I’ve ever seen moved across the canyon.
I took seven minutes of video from inside the Lodge then pulled stills of the lightning.
A fellow Ranger had to go out and tell people to get away from the edge of the veranda and go inside the building. Some people are oblivious. “I JUST wanted a photo.” Duh.
And then came the rain and wind as the storm descended upon the North Rim obliterating the South Rim and the canyon from view for about 30 minutes.
As the clouds cleared and the sun appeared the reward shone through.
And even though I missed the rainbow to the south while closing the Visitor Center I enjoyed the one to the east.
Followed by the clouds parting for the sun to spread its rays.
And continued the show.
I had to leave for dinner so missed the final sunset.
Yet the full moon greeted me upon my return for an evening program.
