Grand Canyon in the rain

We started to the Grand Canyon in drizzly skies that followed us to the park.  But we still got to see the wonderful canyon.  Some of my pictures are not really clear but it was just the foggy atmosphere.grand canyon 1This is a tribute to the Indian tribes from that area.  All the different names are around the edge.  grand canyon 2I don’t think there is an ugly view from any point.grand canyon 3The squirrels were quite friendly and would run under you feet.  Ask Ross – he was nearly tripped by one.grand canyon 4grand canyon 5grand canyon 6grand canyon 7grand canyon 08I think the Grand Canyon is something everyone should see but we know that is not always possible.  Come to Amarillo and you can see the Palo Duro Canyon.  A much smaller scale.grand canyon 09This is the building we saw when we were here 30 years ago.  You can climb to the top and see a long way!
