Kyky, always a hit with the ladies! ;-)
We were especially impressed with the sight of Juniper trees' twisted trunks.
Let's see what all is going on down there.
Walking is definitely the ideal mode of transportation to admire the Canyon's magnificent views.
This section of the Canyon is called The Abyss and boy, was it ever steep!
If you look very closely you'll notice the Colorado River snaking through the rocks.
We went only a little further than Mohave Point, then started to make our way back to the van. As we were walking we encountered a herd of elk quietly grazing and sunbathing by the side of the road. We were told that it was exceptionally early for them to have returned to the area.
We then drove to the end of Hermit Road to the most western stop: Hermits Rest.
It occurred to me that I better put some of the Canyon views on tape or else I'd end up with hundreds of photos. It also gives a much better perspective of how grandiose the landscape is.
More views of the Painted Desert as we drove back to Cameron.
Don't we live on an amazing mindbogglingly beautiful earth!?!
