    Grand Canyon Wildlife

    by SLLiew Written Oct 20, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are reported over 75 mammals, 50 reptiles and amphibians, 25 fish and 300 bird species seen in Grand Canyon.

    Saw mule deer feeding near the rim.

    Other animals if you are lucky are bighorn, bobcats, coyotes and even mountain lions.

    More likely beavers, gophers, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits and bats.

    Twisted Trees

    Favorite thing: Apart from the views, I also loved the twisted trunks of the old Pinion Pines and Utah Junipers throughout the Park. They look like natural sculptures provided by Mother Nature and seemingly growing out of solid rock. I also appreciated how they were conveniently located on the canyon's edge providing a perfect foreground for many of the hundred or so photos that I took of the Canyon.

    Fondest memory: Just before dinner a group of four deer wandered past our campsite. So close. This is so real. More real than anything I've ever done. Life, work, etc. is so far away right now. I think I understand why people come to places like this. Jim told me that spending time in the Grand Canyon would be an experience that would change me forever. I believe he was right.

    (Historical) facts - Trees were everywhere!

    Favorite thing: First of all, we have to tell you, that of all of the pictures we had seen of the Grand Canyon, we were truly surprised by how many trees and how green The Grand Canyon was!

    We were really expecting a big barren red hole! But trees were everywhere! And the panorama over the edge of the rim was overwhelming.

    Flying over the Grand Canyon!
