In June, 2011, Betsy and I visited the Grand Canyon.  It was everything we were told it would be and then some.  I don’t think any picture could do the scene justice, bt we took many anyway.  This picture of the canyon was taken from Yaki Point.

Betsy and I were fortunate enough to see two sunsets at the Grand Canyon.  This sunset was captured from Mather Point near the Grand Canyon Visitor Center.  Pictures just can’t do the scene justice.

Watery Wednesday #148: The Colorado River

The Grand Canyon and Colorado River from the Desert View overlook. June 14, 2011.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

Betsy and I got our first look at the Grand Canyon at the Desert View overlook on the eastern end of the park.  That overlook also provided a good view of the Colorado River.  I always thought that ‘colorado’ meant ‘color red’, but the river looked more green than red.  I’m not complaining, though, the sight was spectacular.
