A quick walk west from the RV connects to the Transept trail along the western rim. An obviously great place for sunset.
A forested trail with views into Transept Canyon and beyond to the Widforss Plateau.
And if adventurous enough to carefully climb onto pillars of limestone just off the trail you feel suspend over the canyon for views past Oza Butte to the South Rim.
Even beyond to the shadows of the San Francisco Peaks and Red Butte rising above the horizon.
I made it to “Employee Rock” which juts into Transept Canyon.
And stayed long enough to see the lights on the South Rim.
Sure glad for my headlamp climbing back off the rocks to the trail.
Then a moonlit night provided enough light to walk home.
For more sky views from around the world go to Sky Watch Friday.
Just one more because I like the glowing contrail.
