View from Spencer Trail of Lee's Ferry and the Vermilion Cliffs

This is the view part way up Spencer Trail. Lee's Ferry boat ramp in the midground. This is the start for most of the Colorado River rafting trips through the Grand Canyon.. The Vermilion Cliffs are showing how they got their name. Arizona Passages

 

For a view of this from the other direction, look the photograph on the cover of Michael Collier's book "Over the Rivers"

He is one of the most amazing photographers I have been privileged to meet. His work is truly exceptional.

 

{edit 03/10/09} This photo is now "Historic". They are finishing a big structure on the raft launch ramp to provide shade. {end edit}
