I have to be careful of submitting too many Grand Canyon sunsets. Every time you see one - even if it's from the same location - it's different. Yet to other people, seeing only the image, I'm sure they get old after awhile.
I'm used to not worrying about when I go and just plan my hiking accordingly. If you've got time to take, I'd just take it and read up on how to hike in the weather that is typical for that month.
To answer your question more fully: If you go during July, August, and maybe even September, plan for significant thunderstorms everyday in the afternoon. This is typically when the monsoons roll into northern Arizona. July and August will be hot for hiking during the day, so you'd want to plan the bulk of your activity for the early morning and evenings. September will still be hot, but it will cool off earlier and the nights might be a bit nippy, especially towards morning. October and November would be nice for hiking any time of the day, though you may run into some early light snow on the rim (you never know around here). If you have any other questions, feel free to note me.
I agree. The Canyon is always changing, but there's only so many pictures folks want to see of it. I kinda feel the same way with all the ruin pics I submit - even though they're all different, I'm sure people can only take so much.
I like how crisp the detail is in this pic. Is that from Hopi Pt.?
Ah, gottcha. I see those buttes and cliffs all the time from Hopi when I do sunset checks out there. Powell makes sense though too, though I haven't been out on that point. View is looking at the same sort of stuff though.
