Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Sky Watch Friday - Morning Light at Grand Canyon


View from Bright Angel Point Trailhead
I’m not much of a really early morning person and when I have the early schedule I dread it. Until I get to the rim of the Grand Canyon and see the sun chase the shadows slowly down the canyon walls. Then I totally forget what time it is.

I love the West. It's the early bird songs and the sunrise that get me out of bed early. Beautiful pictures. Do you carry a camera with you on the job? I'll be following your adventures.

Beautiful scene. I'm the same way with sunrises - never worth it until you get there, then totally worth it. And yet somehow I don't wake up for many! :)

Oh my word that is so pretty. I have always thought of that area as kind of brown. But, your photo shows it with such beautiful color.
