01 Sunset Toroweap GRCA NP AZ (1024x678)

Another beautiful sunset from Toroweap.  This actually comes from the first night camped there and I’ve already showed you the second night.  After the long and bumpy ride we set up camp in a hurry and quickly walked the mile to the rim.  Looking down on the Colorado River in the last light, Lava Falls rapid could be faintly heard.

  5. Great photo, Gaelyn. If I could travel anywhere, I’d visit Macchu Picchu, or maybe the Galapagos Islands. But hey, Africa sounds pretty good, too.

  7. Gaelyn, beautiful view of the canyon and the sunset. Thanks for sharing, happy skywatching!

  8. Moments like those you mention are things I use to keep me from screaming at teenagers. I go to them as my “safe place” when the whining gets out of control:) Lovely shot.
