This is Krista's first sight of the Grand Canyon. For anyone who has never seen it, you just cannot KNOW how immense it is. Pictures do not do it justice. Yes, big is big but SEEING it is a whole other thing. Kris' first glimpse was from the road through trees. She just about gave herself whiplash when she realized what she was seeing.
There was still a lot of snow in the canyon. The North Rim is closed from October through May There was actually a snowfall just a couple of days before we arrived in Williams so seeing the snow wasn't too surprising.
Look closely in the lower left of the picture.
There is a suspension bridge spanning the Colorado River.
It was really bright and me without my shades. Typical.
