If you are only planning on going to the Grand Canyon once in your life I would not recommend 2018 be the year to do it. There is a lot of road construction going on. A LOT. This led to crazy crowded buses. Like so crowded you couldn’t even get on. We did a lot of walking which we were okay with. There have also been water issues off and on since last fall. Apparently pipes keep breaking and the park is in various levels of conservation mode at any given time. When we first got there it was dry camping only but when we left a few days later water was restored. Consider yourself warned.
During all my picture taking I found the word “chiaroscuro” bouncing around my head. I was hoping to get some shots of cloud shadows in the Canyon but it wasn’t meant to be. Still, I took ~150 photos but don’t worry I am only putting a few in this post.
It was rather hazy most of the time we were there.
The Colorado River.
Every time I see the canyon walls I wish I could knit a sweater capturing the layered shades of red, cream and green. I think it would be cool if they sold yarn in these colors at the GC.
