Grand Canyon – Distant River

Grand Canyon photo by Adam Schallau
Sitting on the rim of the Grand Canyon. Sunlight strikes the cliffs and warms the rocks as a gentle breeze spills over the rim into the canyon. In the distance is the faint sound of the rushing waters of the mighty Colorado River, still hard at work carving the grandest of canyons.

The Grand Canyon can be a very harsh environment to work in. Wind, rain, hail, sleet, snow, and extreme temperatures ranging from below zero in the winter to well over 100 degrees at the bottom in the summer, but we still have lots of great weather in between.
