Our trip to the Grand Canyon didn’t start out too hot. As a matter of fact we ran into a blizzard and had to sit in a gift shop for an hour or so where we busied ourselves eating hot dogs. (I believe the one I ate is still haunting me…)
I took this photo with my phone as we tore across the parking lot to get back to the car. I tell you that wind was biting and that snow was wet. Did we not just fly 2236.44 Kilometers to get away from this stuff?
But, being the troopers that we are, we swiped the snow off the car and proceeded out onto the highway thinking that if we could just get to our hotel, we could warm up and regroup. However, it wasn’t too long until a bit of sun peeked out of the clouds and the fog parted enough and we got our first glimpse of the Canyon.
I can’t even describe how it felt. It was absolutely awe-inspiring.
To be continued…

I was thinking of you and wondered how it went and was also afraid you had run into snow. Welcome to the desert just like everywhere else, you never know about the weather.
really neat shot! sorry about the daunting start, though! glad it showed a lot of promise quickly!
Fantastic shot 4 seasons in one day maybe?
