Grand Canyon – North Rim

Wotan's Throne

Wotan’s Throne viewed from Cape Royal.

I had intended to get this post up last week, but as sometimes happens life intervened and I got sidetracked. The month of September kept me busy with two trips to the Grand Canyon –  a backpacking trip down to the Colorado River from the South Rim followed a couple weeks later with a photo trip to the North Rim.

Low Clouds

Looking into the Canyon at Point Imperial just after sunrise.  The low clouds softened the light causing the colors to really pop out.

Morning Fog

An hour later the fog had rolled in changing the whole perspective of the view. The sun threatened to break through but never quite did.

Bison Grazing

A small herd of bison grazing near the park entrance. They kept a cautious eye on us, and soon retreated back into the woods.

Distant River

Morning view from Bright Angel Point, an easy hike from the lodge.

Grazing Mule Deer

Mule deer grazing off the Transept Trail.

Aspen Colors

It being autumn the Aspens wore a surprising variety of color counterpointed by the pines and the clear blue of the skies.
