    I had the honor of meeting up with Antarctican at the Grand Canyon over the weekend! She was quite the trooper for putting up with me and my husband.

    I'm just starting to sort through all the photos, but here are a few I've been able to process. More shots to follow :)

    Colin made the trip too. He had a great time hiking at the canyon.

    Thank you! It's so difficult to capture how beautiful the Grand Canyon is.

    Not a problem at all. I can only imagine how pretty it is. I've never been but it's on my list! You'll be posting more soon right? That looked like a couple of neat places to go to as well in your other post.

    My fav is the last one. =]
    I've seen dozens upon dozens of sunrises from horseback. I love them more than sunrises.

    The sunrise is a nice capture. Its so hard not to get a cliche shot there.

    You drove up from Williams for sunrise? That sounds as insane as something I'd do. Nice shots- Love the colors in the sunrise and sunset!

    Thanks Matt-L! Colin was really a trooper, especially on the partial hike down Bright Angel Trail.

    We almost missed sunrise and I was lucky to get that capture! It was beautiful.

    Thanks dklod. You almost have to take the cliche shot just to get it out of the way.

    Thanks Abraxas! Yes we did! :mrgreen: I tried to warn Anty how crazy we (hubby and me) were. We did see a gorgeous moonset on the way to sunrise. It was well worth the drive.

    Great shots MissMia!

    (I've just been home a few hours and have to get to work. It will be a few days before I get any shots up. Love your sunrise photo...my shot of the moment the sun peaked over the horizon didn't really work out, so I'm glad yours did.)

    Thanks to you and your husband for showing me around the canyon! (And what, no mention of the fact I got stabbed about 15 minutes after our trip to the canyon started? :lmao: )
