Glen Canyon

Since the North Rim was a no-go, we visited the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area at our waitress's suggestion. The scenery was gorgeous - inspiring one of us to take on the "I'm on top of the world" pose. But we won't say who.
The Colorado rive winds through this area before it heads toward the Grand Canyon, making it, well, grand.
You can't tell from this picture how hard it was to get. It involved some climbing across damp rocks after setting the timer. I'm laughing in it because David arrived just as the flash went off.
The remains of a little village of Lee's Ferry are still here, including this old window. We took a little hike to see these and another to see the orchard and old lodge.
