I’ve been posting stories about many places visited lately yet have been remiss sharing what’s happening in my own back yard. July hasn’t been as rainy as usual for monsoon but there’s still been some nice sunsets at Grand Canyon.
Honestly, I haven’t been taking as many photos this year at the North Rim. I do carry the camera everywhere I go for those, special moments. I’m certainly not bored with the view. But I am out and about mostly during mid day, when the light is awful for photography. Also haven’t spent much time out on the Walhalla because the scenic road was closed almost a week because of the Fuller Fire. (Which I keep meaning to post about.)
Only a five minute walk through my pine forested yard the Transept trail on the west side of this tiny peninsula offers a delightful view as the sun sinks below Widforss Plateau. Occasionally I get motivated to hurry out there if the light looks good. I do have to share the view with a row of oaks.
OK, this one is not at Grand Canyon. On July 11th on the way back to Kanab from shopping in St. George Bill hit something in the road and the front left tire blew. He safely slowed and negotiated to the shoulder. The two rigs behind us also stopped, the third car had also hit something and blown a tire. Turned out to be a chunk of metal about one foot long. While we waited for road-care to arrive and change the tire the sun put on a show. What the heck is this?
Although Crazy Jug Point, where we camped last week, is actually in the Kaibab National Forest, once over the rim it’s Grand Canyon. One of my favorite views looking west down canyon especially when storms roll in and the last light shines on the rim edge to the east. Piercing through the trees, leaving behind a soft glow over the canyon.
I updated the the blog but am still not sure if comments are working correctly so please let me know if you have problems. Thank you.
