Photo Saturday: Grand Canyon Outtakes
Jemima Pett suggested it, and since there are so many more photos in my Grand Canyon rafting album than I was able to share even in 8 posts on the trip, I'm doing one more, just for some of the pretties that didn't make the cut. Of course, I lost track of the days of the week again, so here's my Photo Friday coming on Saturday again.
These are just some random photos from the first half of the trip that didn't make it into the main trip reports, with minimal commentary.
|Approaching Navajo Bridge, Day 1|
|First morning on the river|
|Looking for whitewater|
|Some kind of wormish fossil|
|The sandstone and limestone portions of the Canyon are full of fossils.|
|It's not just fossils. The Canyon is full of life.|
Humans, too, sometimes being strange.
|The apex of river fashion|
|Creekside boulder reveals the radical variations in water level in the Little Colorado|
|Keep an eye on the sky.|
|The beautiful green or clear water we had all the way isn't natural or normal, of course, but a result of the Glen Canyon dam and a lack of recent run-off in side canyons.|
|Sometimes the color is a reflection of the walls. Sometimes, as here, that red is intensified by minerals in the water.|
Hope you enjoyed a little photo break!
