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.

Scenic Sunday – Storm behind the Saddle

01 Storm beyond Saddle E from Point Imperial NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x752)

View east across the saddle from Point Imperial

A few weeks ago Mike and I went for a drive, and a few short hikes, during a storm. The canyon appears in many guises and I love them all.

Seeing a storm move in over the canyou, specially if it has thunder and lightning, must be a stunning sight.

Gaelyn, every picture is a post card when I come here. My how you have improved your photography since starting this blog! Wonderful! So glad I at least got to glimpse this place before I left AZ. Perhaps one day I will get to come back a dwell awhile!

Always wonderful views. Hmmm!

So what are your winter plans? Or are you still trying to figure that out. MB

Thank you for showing many of the moods and idiosyncrasies of the canyon. Such a beautiful, fascinating place. :)

Wow, that looks very intimidating - like I'd find a place to hunker down. Are those storms usually pretty local?

So if you're up there during a storm, I imagine the safest thing to do is to stay put, right?

Craver Vii said...

I said "up there," though it is probably more accurate to say "down there."

LOL
Regarding your comment about the date on my blog--I just don't ever know where I am or when. I had the year as 20010 so you can't expect me to change everything all at once. haha
Thanks for pointing that out. MB
