Pictures don't really capture how incredibly amazing this place is, especially that first look over the edge. You catch your breath and realize this is a moment in your life you will never ever forget.
Those tiny things on top of the rocks in the foreground are actually people. Just a little perspective on how imense the Grand Canyon really is. A rainstorm was moving through the canyon.
As the storm moved through the canyon, the colors would change every few seconds, giving the canyon an intense 3D effect. Probably the most beautiful and amazing minutes of my life...
If you look closely in the middle of this picture you will see a deer we saw grazing along the trail. I've been to both the North and South Rims of the Grand Canyon. Too hard to pick a favorite. (These photos were taken at the South Rim.) It is one of my favorite places on Earth.
