The many varied colours of the Grand Canyon just before sunset.

South Rim of the Grand Canyon

The south rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona is fine stop on our road trip.  Carved by the Colorado river and 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and 1800 metres deep (over 1 mile deep!). In some of the photos you can see the air pollution, however this tends to be more visible in the brighter part of the day and can wash out some of the colours of the canyon.  We stayed till sunset where colours became quite intense.  Our photos are mainly from the south rim, its a heck of a chunk of rock to get around.  If we go again, we’ll try a sunrise and a trip on the Colorado river rapids.
