Winter at the South Rim

We arrived at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on Sunday and were met with clear skies with a threat of snow later in the week. The original plan was to stay at the South Rim for three nights, leaving Wednesday (December 17th) and head to Furnace Creek, Death Valley. That was the plan until we got over 12” of snow Tuesday making the Canyon just beautiful. December is just a great time to visit the South Rim as there are very few tourists and the scenery is spectacular; totally different lighting conditions from the rest of the year. The new plan is to stay an additional day before we need to figure what to do next. Enjoy the images.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours
