Thunderstorms from Bright Angel Point - Grand Canyon

This is the view from Bright Angel Point during Arizona monsoon season as a thunderstorm hits the San Francisco Peaks and Flagstaff. Wish I could add a little Ferde Grofe soundtrack :)


I spent a long weekend hiking, backpacking and camping on the North Rim and down the North Kaibab Trail.


Backpacking the Canyon is always a trade off between weight and equipment. I wish I had brought my tripod to capture some long exposure lightning strikes. They were awesome. Oh well - maybe next year.
