Geology of the National Parks in Pictures - Grand Canyon

The next up on my tour of the National Parks in pictures:

 The entrance sign. (A favorite thing of mine to photograph)

 This is our first view of the canyon. We went during the middle of March. Not a good time to go apparently.

 But it did eventually clear up. This is a similar location as the previous picture on a subsequent day.

 Some elk by our hotel room.

 View by the main hotel area of the park.

 Different filter on almost the same picture to highlight some of the colors.

 Me trying to get to the edge for a picture without wanting to slide off.

 Panoramic of the canyon.

 I liked the clouds in this shot.

 Along the rim they have these markers designating the passage of geologic time. I walked all the way back to the beginning to get the first one.

 I thought this was a cool little train station in the middle of the hotel area of the park.

Another panoramic of the canyon.

You can see the rest of the National Park Pictures at my website.
