Sundown by Rhavethstine Sundown by Rhavethstine
I have to be careful of submitting too many Grand Canyon sunsets. :blush: 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.

C&C welcome.

Superb shot, the lighting is amazing. You've done quite a job maintaining the detail in the shadows without blowing out those beautiful orange canyon walls. :clap:

Sunsets in the Grand Canyon will never get old to me.

This is a very nice capture, just at the right moment, and crisp.

It's always beautiful.

I am thinking of visiting the GC this year. Would July, August, September, October or November be good to hike to the bottom?

Thank you.

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.

Thank you very much for this information. I'll probably do it in October/November when it cools down and it is not swarming with tourists. I really appreciate this.

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.?

:iconrhavethstine:
Rhavethstine Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2007
Yup. I think I'll give the Canyon a rest for a bit. I didn't quite realize my last five pictures had something to do with it. :)

RE: Hopi Point. Not quite, but close. :) This is from... I think it's called Powel Point... It's the one just to the east of the Lost Orphan mine where you can get out on that long narrow point.

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.
