Grand Canyon Oasis

Grand Canyon Oasis Paradise by Selep Imaging


Grand Canyon Oasis Paradise by Selep ImagingI don't know if my photo does this location justice, but this was one of the most breathtakingly beautiful spots on the Grand Canyon River adventure that my daughter and I went on in May, 2009.
-
We hiked up a narrow canyon carved out over thousands of years by the stream shown, and got to this mini-oasis with a waterfall. The trees you can see are towering Cottonwood trees. Trees were a rare site near the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon, and so seeing actual tall trees was stunning. The hill behind the trees looks up close and small, but was actually a huge canyon wall dappled by the sun through the clouds. I would have loved to stay for hours here.

I'm a western girl, myself, so I appreciate the beauty of rocks & boulders, blue sky, and the little bit of green that sometimes is interspersed between! Gorgeous shot. Sue
