Grand Canyon - Part Two

Cloud Over Lipan Point

Lipan Point is a stop on the 26-mile Desert View Drive that loops the South Rim of the Canyon. After hiking and muling for 4 days, we chose to ride in an air-conditioned vehicle for a change.

While at first glance this appears to be just a cloud-over-the-Canyon image, if you look towards the bottom right-hand corner of the photograph, you can see the Colorado River winding through the landscape. This reference point will give you an idea as to the massive scale of the cloud overhead and the completely unobstructed, panoramic view of the Canyon.
