Before we leave the Grand Canyon

I wanted to share some more photos of the Grand Canyon that I meant to include in the last post.

First, Mr. Bean in an “action shot”

Some sights along the way

Prickly Pear cactus in bloom
The remarkably engineered South Kaibab Trail going down
First glimpse of the Colorado River and the Black Bridge on the way down
The Black Bridge crossing the Colorado River at the bottom of the South Kaibab Trail
More Prickly Pear – yellow this time!!
Agave Utahensis in bloom (they bloom once and then die)
Common Side blotched lizard
Canyon tree frog (two views)
An American Dipper (who was feeding young at a nest site near Ribbon Falls)
Seep Monkeyflower
Crimson Monkeyflower
View of the top (North Rim) on the way up
Bridge crossing near the Supai Tunnel (approaching the top of the North Rim)

As my friend Brian notes, this Canyon is Grand.
