Snowman’s view


Snowman on South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

The fresh 3-inch snowfall was a godsend.  Normally, this area is too hot and dry for me to stand on the rim of the Grand Canyon, but today I should be sitting pretty.  I’ve managed to find a spot with a excellent view of the canyon with a little bit of shade, important since I’ve forgotten my hat.  The sunrise this morning was absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait for sunset.  While I’m waiting, I really hope one of the California Condors flies over.  I know they are generally not seen this time of year, but it’s been a pretty warm winter and I’ve heard some of the tourists have seen them this month.  Even if I don’t see one,  this is still an awesome place.   The weather forecast for tonight is cold and clear, so this should also be a great spot to sky gaze.

It seems I’ve also forgotten my camera which I thought was going to be a problem.  But fortunately there have been plenty of tourists who have been very happy to take my photograph.  So I’m not worried about being able to post updates to my Facebook page.
