We hiked down Bright Angel Trail to Phantom Ranch to enjoy some winter in Arizona.
This view of the light on the North Rim struck me as special.
"You cannot see the Grand Canyon in one view, as if it were a changeless spectacle from which a curtain might be lifted, but to see it you have to toil from month to month through its labyrinths. It is a region more difficult to traverse than the Alps or the Himalayas, but if strength and courage are sufficient for the task by a year's toil a concept of sublimity can be obtained never again to be equaled on the hither side of Paradise." John Wesley Powell
