Sunset on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
I photographed this scene of the Grand Canyon at sunset on the last day of the first 100 years of the National Park Service. About 30 minutes before sunset a thunderstorm built-up west of here near the Grand Canyon Lodge, the only storm over the canyon that evening, and slowly moved east towards Cape Royal. The timing couldn't have been more perfect as the storm opened up and the rain fell into the valley west of Wotans Throne as the sun was setting. I can't think of a better way to celebrate the end of the first 100 years of our National Parks.Add to Lightbox Download
