Grand Canyon at Sunrise

Sunrise at the Grand Canyon

We were driving old Route 66/Interstate 40 last summer and took a detour to visit the Grand Canyon once again. We were staying at Canyon Village and had to get up at 4:30 to drive the 35 miles to the Watch Tower at the east end of the Park to see and photograph the sunrise over the canyon.

At 5:30 it was bone chilling cold and dark as a coal pit but then the Sun came over the rim and suddenly it was glorious!
