Last week on Wednesday it snowed and left about a 4 inch blanket on the North Rim of Grand Canyon.
Looking into Roaring Springs Canyon
Visitors were surprised wanting to know if this is normal. At 8200 feet we can get snow in June. They were disappointed yet handled it well.
Thursday after the fog lifted out of the canyon the snow melted quickly.
A patchwork remained by Friday when I went out to rove at overlooks on the scenic drive. I dressed warm and felt chilled by the end of the day suffering from a head cold ever since.
Yet I looked beyond the canyon to the Marble Plateau knowing it would be warm there sooner than the Kaibab Plateau. And that’s where Mike and I will be tomorrow on the return route from grocery shopping in Page via the Grand Staircase Escalante. Going to be in the 80s there so I can leave behind the long johns I’ve been wearing for a week.
