Going thru some old images and thought I'd repost this pano I shot from Yavapai Point on the South Rim two years ago...







A throwback image to celebrate Autumn.

We went there about forty years ago. Some things are truly timeless. Beautiful shot and nice memory. Thanks.

Seeing the distant thunderstorm made me wonder if anyone got caught in a flash flood in one of the slot canyons which reminded me of this terrifying video of a group of canyon hikers that just barely missed getting swept off a 200' drop by a flood. I'm all stressed now :-)

Sorry, hal...

It'll help, Steve, if you take a deep breath and chant, "water always wins, water always wins"...

Thx, all, for your comments...

Beautiful shot!

“ terrifying video “

That was pretty wild. Flash floods are always in the back of my mind in canyon country.
Years ago I was camping in Grand Gulch and one night there thunderstorms about twenty to thirty miles away (Bear’s Ears). I was sleeping on a little rise, but my friend was sleeping a little lower, not in a wash, but open canyon floor. In the middle of the night I was awoken by an odd rustling noise; it was water flowing through the leaves on the canyon floor. I was high and dry, but I woke my friend in time to get him moved before he got soaked. A short time later there was three to four inches of water flowing across most of the canyon. The nearby ruins, of course, were dry.
