Photo of the Day – Grand Canyon Mountain Range – Grand Canyon, Arizona, USAMost of the photos I see of the Grand Canyon are from the ridge or the wide of the Canyon. While the Canyon is certainly beautiful from that perspective, I find it much more beautiful from inside. As I noted in the title and I remember our guide saying, there is a “Mountain Range” inside of the Canyon. At first I was unsure of what he meant, but as we got further down into the canyon, I quickly understood.
I took this picture only a couple hours into hiking down from the ridge on our very first day. We are probably only a few hundred meters below the edge, but you can already begin to see the “Mountain Range” of the Grand Canyon forming. There is no doubt in my mind that this belongs in the Top 10 AbsoluteVisits – The Grand Canyon #6.
Photo of the Day – Wheelbarrow on the New Hance Loop – Grand Canyon, Arizona, USAI snapped this picture while on a hike with my Dad in the Grand Canyon. The wheelbarrow is actually from the early 1900′s and was used by miners on the same trail we were hiking. I can not even imagine how miners pushed a wheelbarrow up some of the trails we climbed – incredible. The trail that we hiked specifically was called the New Hance Loop.
Has anyone else hiked the Grand Canyon? Which trail did you hike?
