In The Mission

Sunrise, Sunset

Yo! So we were out in the middle of fucking nowhere. No cell phone reception, no Internet, no electricity...well, that last part is a lie. And the first part. But there was no WiFi at the inn. So no updates. Instead, we had sunrise at Grand Canyon.

Get up early on the North Rim and there's no one else but you.

Driving in the middle of the night through the wilderness with tons of deer glaring into your headlights--sound familiar, huh, Aki? Totally worth it again.

So frigging worth it you're going to get a third photo of the sunrise.

Told ya.

Stayed two nights at Jacob Lake Inn, some 45 miles from the North Rim (depending on where you want to go) and had far better time than on the South Rim. Fewer tourists, see? In any case. Getting up at 3:15 AM meant that we had a hell of a long day in front of us. We had time for wildlife.

And yeah, we did take like a million other photos of the canyon, but the scale doesn't really translate. So I post only this and then one more.

Hell of a long day? Yeah, because we wanted to see sunset at GC, too. And did, at Cape Royal. The wind picked up like crazy and it was Mistral strength by the time we got to the canyon. Beautiful, beautiful.

Sunset. Few tourists around, some having OJ and Smirnoff. Why not.
