    Grand Canyon opening up at Desert View

    Coming from the east, this is your first encounter with the Canyon. You see the Colorado as it makes its huge sweep from southflowing to the west. The Marble Canyon section in the north expanding into the everwidening Grand Canyon; to the east, the Painted Desert.

    Verga

    How about this view for breakfast? Imagine the sunrise & sunset!

    Afternoon rainstorms can be expected in the summer months with several storm cells moving through the canyon simultaneously.

    When the air is very dry or the temperatures in the canyon are high, falling moisture evaporates before hitting ground, a condition of 'dry rain' known as verga.

    What to see???

    I have never seen a picture that has ever done the Grand Canyon justice. I kept taking them and I managed to capture little pieces of beauty here and some majesty there but to really understand the Grand Canyon, to really appreciate it, you have to see it with your own eyes.

    Driving east along the rim of the Canyon starting at the Visitors' Center is a beautiful drive with many places to stop to take pictures. Speed limits are SLOW in Grand Canyon National Park.

    My son communes with nature

    No brush can paint, nor pencil trace,
    The charm and beauty of this place;
    Wonders that in this Canyon dwell,
    No tongue of man can ever tell...

    Henry Felton Huse

    ... and photos pale as well!

    You have to spend all day in Grand Canyon. To see the best view of the canyon take your trip in sunny day.
