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.

Scenic Sunday - Shadows in Grand Canyon


View southeast from Angels Window overlook along the Cape Royal trail
I love the late afternoon views of the Grand Canyon from the Walhalla Plateau. The shadows change rapidly as the sun westers beyond the canyon walls. Then add a few clouds to float above and create patches of shadows that dance across the land.

Sorry the Cliff Springs Trail didn’t get posted today. Ran out of time. Maybe tomorrow

Shadows accent the light that we often neglect to see. Beauty is always before us, but we are often too tired to open our eyes.

Gaelyn, you must never truly sleep in the Grand Canyon.

The play of shadows and light which you show here would be enchanting to watch. Just amazing.

Cloud shadows are fun to watch or track. It looks like the land changes shape as the clouds shift and move on. MB

Beautiful. I think you can take a photo every day of the Grand Canyon and it will present you with a different beauty afresh
