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 - Here comes the rain


Last Thursday and Friday Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim celebrated the 16th annual Native American Heritage Days to celebrate the cultural connections of native people to the park. (I’ll post about it soon.) Prior to a flute performance in the Lodge’s auditorium this is what we watched coming our way. Yet barely any rain fell on us.

Spectacular rain shower. Sound like Tampa. A huge threatening storm forms, and then it rains exactly 50 yards away. Not a drop on our heads while watching the show. I look forward to your Native-American photos.

I envy you for spending so much time around the Grand canyon. It seems to be such a beautiful and awe inspiring place. I alway find it strange to see the rain coming in from miles away like its in a dream.

Why do I want to visit the Grand Canyon every time I visit your blog? We haven't been for years and I so want to go again. Wonderful pictures -- thanks for sharing.

Pretty cool. Next time I visit GCNP, I would check you out. You know the best places to view the place.

Have a great weekend.

Well, the sky was portending rain - that's for sure! Glad the festivities weren't rained-out. Hope your water heater problem is fixed.

Looks like it's really pouring. It must be strange to look over the rim and know that those drops still have so far to go before they hit bottom. Almost like being in a cloud and watching the drops fall.

Louise said...

Your storms are incredible! Not getting much rain from them, however, is a bit of a tease.

Janie said...

Seeing a storm in the canyon, and yet not actually getting rained upon, makes you realize how vast the canyon really is. Great shot.

Cindy said...

Great shot. Like seeing it rain across the street. ;D

Gaelyn: Nice capture of the wet sky, hard to believe you didn't get soaked. The canyon must be great after a rain.

Amazing it's like someone turned on the showerhead!

Arija said...

Wonderful when it is hot and dry to finally get a decent shower.
You have captured it at close range too.

SandyCarlson said...

Amen! That is glorious.

I love seeing the rain showers in the sky---drying up before they hit the ground. Excellent shot.

I love Native American flutes. I have several CDs. MB
