A Year in the Grand Canyon

September 09, 2014  •  1 Comment

The small number of people who actually make the hike all the way down to Phantom Ranch in the bottom of the Grand Canyon typically only get to experience it for a few days at most. Often, it's down one day, and back up the next. I was fortunate enough to spend just over a year working and living there, which allowed me the opportunity to witness one of the country's most impressive national parks change through all four seasons. From monsoon storms in summer to bright cactus flowers in spring to yellow cottonwood leaves in autumn, these are a few of my favorite images. See the rest and choose yours here

Beautiful photographs across the galleries. Reminders of past travels but from an artistic eye I don't have. Is there any ability to purchase prints.
