North Rim Sunset

Some sunset shots at The North Rim of The Grand Canyon. Some images show smoke beyond the South Rim, from a prescribed fire.

  1. Were you disappointed that the smoke obscured your view? To go all that way, after all. But it adds a primeval feeling to the photos, right in tune with the geology. 🙂

    I remember these scenes, Michael. Your photos are spectacular. I see the smoke…
    I wish you were on IG, there are tones of viewers. 🙂

      • The place I go camping every 2 weeks is closed right now. It’s 75 degrees there. Where I live, it’s 100!

      • Yah, it’s around this time of year where all of us get tired of the heat and want to move somewhere cooler. My young nephew was just asking me if I wanted to move to Ireland with him where it is cooler and rains more often. (Smart kid.)
