After a morning spent "experiencing the impact" at the Meteor Crater near Flagstaff, AZ, we made our way in the ridiculously changing weather to the Grand Canyon. When we first arrived I was miffed that there was so much cloud cover obscuring the view, but it lifted while we were there to reveal the canyon in all its glory. People doing crazy things to get a good photo gave me heart palpitations, there's a girl taking a selfie in the pic below and I witnessed a guy nearly kick his tripod over the side whilst setting up a shot.
Back in 2005, Andy and I couldn't find a place to pull over in time to witness a spectacular sunset, so on this trip we left in plenty of time and found a secluded rock to sit on and watch the magic happen. Alas, 9 years later, the sun is in a different spot and it set behind us.
