Grand Canyon Sunset

    Newer Older

    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.

      Gorgeous depiction!
      In July of 2008, several of my family members, friends and I ran the Colorado River through the canyon on privately owned rafts. It took over 20 years for our permits to come of age! The trip was 18 days LONG!!! What an adventure. It was spectacular, challenging, exhausting, about every superlative you can come up with, and very worth doing.
