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.

SWF - Day by day at Grand Canyon National Park


When I arrived at Grand Canyon last Friday I was greeted by a few fluffy clouds over the canyon.
By Saturday clouds were slowly filling the canyon. El Tovar appears to be floating on an island.

Then Sunday, there was no view, only thick sky.

Amazing! I didn't know you would get for like that there. Great photos!

Moannie said...

Even your cloudscape is spectacular.
Actually that last picture could have been taken from my window-grey skies, will they ever go away?
Forecast is rain, rain and more rain, but what's the betting we will have drought warnings in July.

I've never seen a shot of the Grand Canyon shrouded in fog before---very interesting!

Carolyn Ford said...

WOW! Look at that! I have never seen the canyon filled with clouds before! That's amazing!

You are so lucky to be there and work there and see this miracle daily.

I saw your post yesterday. Made me sick.

I love birds and am especially upset with the decline of so many birds and these beautiful birds are special or should be.

I have never been to the canyon. It must be grand. It was selected by a tribe of Native Americans as home and I suspect they still live there.

Amazing how quickly the weather can change. The people in Cape Town have much of that. One moment a clear mountain and the next minute the table cloth comes over.

Diane AZ said...

Whoa, now that last one is probably a view rarely seen in the Grand Canyon!

Rob Inukshuk said...

Amazing how a place can be so altered by the weather, both short term as well as over time!

Linda Jacobs said...

Oh, the floating island one is gorgeous! So atmospheric!

Sylvia K said...

I think that last shot looks very familiar to a lot of us! Love the floating island!! Hope you have a great weekend, Gaelyn!

What a gorgeous transition from start to finish. Thanks for sharing the [snowless]beauty. Cheers from Minnesota.

You live in the West - wait five minutes and the weather will change. Great group of pictures.

The Giraffe Head Tree said...

Fascinating. That's probably rather eerie - a fog-filled canyon. Terrific post, Gaelyn.

Great shot.

It was a day just like the last picture when "The People" emerged from the canyon to start a new life for themselves and the generations that followed.

Al said...

That's a great series of photos. Great variety in just a couple of days!

Barb said...

How changeable! I hope you didn't have to drive in the bad weather.

LV said...

Grand Canyon is an amazing place. You captured some very interesting shots from there.

Brit Gal Sarah said...

Wow kinda scary, knowing me I'd fall off an edge!

Ebie said...

Zero visibility? Isn't that scary? I have never seen that thick of a cloud formation!

The first shot is just gorgeous! Enjoy your ranger days at the Grand Canyon.

Take care!

Martha Z said...

Nature gave you a little of everything.

LadyFi said...

That middle shot is dramatic!

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Love that second shot Gaelyn.

Just three more working days for me. LOL!!

Bibi said...

The first photo is how I always think of the Grand Canyon, undoubtedly because that's the way I first viewed it! Will see it again, by cracky.

jeannette stgermain said...

Wonder if it's eerie not to be able to see the mountains...and watching your step extra carefully!!

Elaine said...

Gorgeous series!

Jo said...

Stunning "mistical" shots, Gaelyn!

Karen said...

The canyon looks different every day. I still can't see it enough, and can't wait to get back there.

Wren said...

Wow ... now you see it, now you don't!

Louise said...

So, so different from summer.
