When I travelled to the Grand Canyon National Park at the beginning of January, my buddy and I had no idea that it had been completely covered in a blanket of snow only days before we arrived on January 8. Here are a few photos that were taken as we drove from Sedona (89A) through the Coconino National Forest to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. After taking in the IMAX as a primer for what to expect during our visit, we managed to see a number of significant look out points such as Mather Point, Hopi Point, and Maricopa Point.
- Coconino National Forest (arrival at 8:00 a.m.)
- Mather Point, Grand Canyon National Park (arrival at 9:30 a.m.)
Maricopa Point – the birthplace of Man (so the sign said) (arrival at 3:00 p.m.)
This was our second trip to the Grand Canyon in the span of 8 months (our first visit was to the West Rim from Las Vegas in May 2014). I’m glad that my friend wanted us to make the journey out to the South Rim of the Park during our stay in Sedona. I can say without hesitation that I was left speechless at times, viewing out into the great chasm of the Canyon and being stunned into complete and utter silence by its beauty. There is nothing like this place on earth. I am very grateful for the day that we spent taking in the breathtaking views, the crisp morning air, and the spiritual energy that abounds here. If you have not had the opportunity to travel to the Grand Canyon, this must be one of the places you visit on your bucket list. While these photographs may give you a taste of what you can expect to experience, there is nothing like feeling the power of this place in person. I know I will be back here in the future as I continue my life’s journey with love, patience and intention. Namaste, everyone.
