We were so fortunate to have clear weather. It had snowed the week before and there were gale force winds the day before we arrived.
This is about as clear a day as you can get at the Canyon, although a nearby controlled burn created a touch of haze. The far edge is about 10 miles away. We could see Mt. Thompson – which is 100 miles off – very clearly.
The canyon is so dramatically beautiful that even when you’re there it’s kind of hard to absorb. It is truly humbling.
