Photographer's Note

This the Fourth of Twenty Four of my Grand Canyon Series.

The Grand Canyon is just 247 miles north of Phoenix, Arizona, the Grand Canyon is frequently a destination for Arizona visitors. The number of things to do in the Grand Canyon is countless. Experience the majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon for yourself. Take a trip down the Colorado River and see deep into the Grand Canyon's characteristic gorge. Marvel at the layer upon layer of rock, piled like a stack of pancakes. Float down the river on a expertly guided tour and watch wildlife surrounded by tiers of limestone, sandstone, and shale excavated by the Colorado River and over half a billion years of wind, water and energy.

See the Grand Canyon as the eagle does and soar above the plateau on a helicopter or airplane tour. Fly around towering buttes, mesas, and valleys within the Grand Canyon's main gorge. Soar over dense evergreen forests of juniper and piρon, or arid plateaus speckled with desert plants like agave and Spanish bayonet. The Grand Canyon plateau region's forests are segmented by old lava flows, hills of volcanic debris and intrusions of igneous rock. Seeing the Grand Canyon by air is an unforgettable adventure with a unique perspective. This photo was taken along the Bright Angel Trail, two hours before sunset.
