By far the most humbling place I have ever been to in my life, was able to hike down to Plateau Point and back in one day, took over 7 hrs and was the physically most exhausting thing I have ever done, it will be the last time I bring ALL MY PHOTO GEAR. Anyway, the place is spectacular!

Great images! Love #5.

Hubby and I hiked all the way down, spent the night , and hiked all the way up the next day. He commented that it was the toughest thing we'd do for the rest of our lives. And he is retired military, etc, etc. That was in 1991!

Only thing that came close was a one-day arduous hike on Kaui.

Very nice, especially the first one.

It's been a few years since I was there, it really is an awesome sight and you've done a great job of capturing it.

You see a lot of pictures of the canyon but I find these especially nice. As beautiful as the rest are, I love the one of Monument Valley. Just a very cool perspective.

These are excellent, the beauty is amazing. I was on the north rim last summer, you can hardly get enough of looking, composing and shooting.

I love the set! I was there when I was pretty young and didn't really appreciate it but now that I am older and into photography. How much different is the path that you took compared to the mull riding path?
