Grand Canyon Sunset

This week ends with a posting of a picture taken at sunset from Yavapai Point on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. This time you can see more of the Grand Canyon, the gorge of the Colorado River, considered to be one of the major natural wonders of the world than in my previous two postings.


If you think it’s a bit hazy in the distance please remember how big this canyon is. On the left you can see the plateau of Wotans Throne (2327m – 7633ft) and the top of the Vishnu Temple (2386m – 7829ft) about 13 and 15 km (8 and 9.5 miles) away to the east and the horizon is formed by the Palisades of the Desert at a distance of 27 km (17 miles).


Dedicated to Lens Capricious and his version of the Grand Canyon in which he describes the captivated awe of its grandiosity.


Nice to see in Large and on Black


Have a great weekend, everyone.
