Grand Canyon North Rim – unexpected beauty!

I had no idea that there was a North Rim to this famous Canyon. We now know that The Canyon is more than 260 winding miles with the Colorado River continuing to etch beauty through the layers upon layers of rock and sediment. We walked out on several of the prominences to view the the layers and spectacle. Words fail me so please enjoy some of our photos. If you have the chance visit this place and get an amazing perspective on a fantastic natural wonder.

Rain clouds offered us changing colors as light flicked along the ridges.

Even in black and white – stunning.

As the distant storm moved in and soon it was raining – we were provided amazing colors enhanced by sun peaking through clouds and sparkles of lightening.

This grandmother was waiting for her family to return from a walk out to the edge. I loved the peace that emanated from her.

From behind the Lodge we saw these two views enhanced by rich vegetation along the rough cliffs. We gazed south toward the more well known South Rim. But here trees resisting wind, rain and erosion – hanging on for dear life – were flourishing. This beautiful place will be special to us always.

Angel Window gives us a peak at the river below. We walked out along the ridge but only so far – it’s very high and narrow.
