Grand Canyon in 23 Photos

Our Grand Canyon backpacking trip was fantastic! Impatience causes me to post the photos now and the text later. Also, I have yet to post photos and text about our experiences at Chaco Canyon. At the moment, we're in Boston visiting Julie's daughter. Hopefully, over the next few days, I'll be able to catch up on favorite blogs.

I have some "issues" with the Grand Canyon, but not with the beauty. Great photos!

What a spectacular journey. I've never been to the Grand Canyon, but these photos convey much of the stunning and awe-inspiring beauty. I love the pic of the petroglyph and the Big Horn sheep.

How can you guys tromp around in 112 degrees and not keel over from heat stroke?
