Sedona: Grand Canyon
Yen’s been to the Grand Canyon so many times now that he knows all the best lookouts and exactly where to stop for the bathroom along the way. But I hadn’t ever been there. So off we went.
Yep, it was cold. The wind whipping through the canyon was pretty serious, and even the completely clear sky couldn’t warm us up.
We started at the main visitors’ center, and then drove over to the east end. Here’s the tower at the eastern-most overlook.
This is inside the tower, which is constructed to look like a traditional native structure, and then is filled with traditional art.
Here’s Yen on the viewing area of the tower. A rare photo of the photographer!
Yen’s trying to figure out what the heck this thing is.
Yep, that’s snow down there. Remember that this time of year, the whole north rim of the Canyon is closed.
There were ravens absolutely everywhere, scolding all the tourists.
As the light began to dim, we raced toward a point at the west end where Yen wanted to photograph the sunset. Good thing he was paying attention, because we came around the corner and saw this.
I watched the sunset as long as I could manage, and then retreated to the car leaving Yen in peace. Not pictured: the crazy migraine I developed on the way home. Yikes.
