The Beautiful Grand Canyon in Blue

On day four of our trip, it was time to make the 3.5 to 4 hour drive from Las Vegas to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon where you can view the canyon from the overlooks in the national park. We got up early in an effort to be sure we got there in enough time to catch the awesome views before sunset. Kara prepared and packed up snacks, we had bottled water , and some additional beverages just in case! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Kevin was sweet enough to drive on the way out, so the rest of us were able to nap, take pictures and play on the computer. It was definitely a long ride, and I don’t think it helped that we stopped a lot, but it’s worth it to see the canyon in person!

As we arrived to the entrance of the park, snow started falling. The forecast had a 30% chance of precipitation, so we weren’t surprised. We found our way to the new visitor center (another amenity that wasn’t there the last time Kara had been), and were able to watch a video about the Canyon and how it came to be. It’s really an amazing thing to watch and learn about. Following the video, we walked the path to the overlook, and with all the snow, it was ironically very difficult to see the canyon in it’s entirety. We got a lot of pictures and although there wasn’t full visibility, it was still and amazing sight!

We hadn’t eaten for a while and the snow was still coming down, so we decided to check out one of the lodges in the park. Looking at the map and driving around, I was so surprised at how many people live and work there and what all they actually have accessible within the park! There is a grocery store, various restaurants and eateries, a bank and a post office. There is also a school and lots of housing for employees. It was kind of like visiting a small town in the middle of nowhere. Our friends Elaine and John talked to one of the staff members, and he said there isn’t really anything within less than an hour and a half to two-hour of the park as far as activities and entertainment go. Seems crazy coming from suburbia and the city!

We went to Maswik Lodge where they had a food court with various food options. You could even buy beer there, nice huh?! The Lodge had a gift shop and there was also a front desk reservation area if you are a guest. Lunch was tasty… better than fast food, but no fine dining. They have some restaurants that are more fine dining, but we were keeping it  simple.

The snow seemed to be coming down even harder after we ate! We were kind of hoping it would slow down, but as we were checking out the gift shop, we noticed it getting worse! Our initial instinct was to get in the car and hit the road, but it started to slow down and we had driven so far to get there, we decided to get out another overlook. We stopped by where they have canyon side cabins (they were so cool) with an awesome view of the canyon. Kara said she had looked into them just in case we wanted to stay in the park for a night, but they were all booked! But as we were walking along the path, we were able to catch some blue sky and were actually able to see the fog lift out of the canyon. Seeing all the way down and across the canyon was absolutely amazing and it seemed like it was fate cause we weren’t going to stop, but we were absolutely glad we did!

Paul actually convinced us that we should stop back by the original overlook (by the visitor center) because as the fog started to lift, he was sure he could get some breathtaking shots of the canyon. It was getting dark, but he had his tripod and we walked back out through the trail to the original spot, he set up and you would not believe what he got! Check these beautiful photos out!

I couldn’t be happier with the outcome because not only did I get to see the Grand Canyon, I got to see it in a way that many people don’t! In BLUE…. When we had first gotten there, Kara and Kevin actually overheard another couple talking and one of them had said he had been to the canyon many times and it was the first time he had ever seen it in these colors. Now see them in HDR!

I know one day Paul and I will go back there… we may even go back with Kara and Kevin who were talking about doing a two-week camping/rafting adventure through the canyon, but I have a feeling that I will never again see it in that light! Absolutely amazing…

  • I’m glad you enjoyed the Grand Canyon. The colors in your photos are amazing and I didn’t realize how blue the canyon could appear in winter. I recently visited Grand Canyon myself last summer taking the same drive from Vegas. I hope you can visit it again sometime in the future, but here are a couple photos from my blog of the Grand Canyon in summer. Enjoy.

    • The contrast is absolutely amazing!
      But isn’t that typical of life in general! While the underlying Rock stays the same, our vision is influenced by the thin layer covering it, or the amount of sun coloring it.
      On my blog http://www.bibledifferences.com I explore the causes for the differences between the KJV and NIV. I find the same in people’s observance of the Rock of the Word we Christians stand on.
      God bless and thank you for sharing the beauty Of God’s creation, both The Grand Canyon, and Grand People!

    • Before you were born i 1987….we went down and stayed at the hostel and hiked back at the sunrise…
      It was magic. I am in Poland at the moment, my husband in New Mexico and your photos took me back to the past! Your photos are fantastic! thank you, Barbara

    After looking at the brilliant pix, I now realize that’s unforgivable! ๐Ÿ™

    February 24, 2012 at 2:48 pm
  • The Canyon is a magical place — I’ve been three times and I still long to go back. If you ever get a chance go to the lookout point called the watchtower — the views from there are absolutely stunning. Congrats on being FP’d.

    Grand Canyon, though, is one of those places where you got to see it with your own eyes.

    February 24, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    February 24, 2012 at 4:01 pm

  • Oh! Grand Canyon! How I love you, how I miss you…
    I’m British, and my first ever flight on an aeroplane was to America, aged 16, where on a school science trip we started from Las Vegas and then travelled in a circle through Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, then back to Las Vegas, stopping off at all of the national parks along the way. Of my most favourite trips abroad, that trip would have to be my most favourite of favourites. I’d give anything to relive it all exactly, and your pictures brought me as close as physically possible. They are beautiful.
    I write poetry on my blog, and one of my posted poems, “Hiding From The Sun”, is about my trip to America. Our day at the Grand Canyon was particularly unforgettable as it started off just as boiling hot as it had been all throughout the holiday (we went July-August), but then without warning the heavens opened, and it poured so much with rain, we were all soaked! The only people in the entire group of 50-odd schoolgirls and eight teachers who had raincoats with them were two of the teachers! Still a wonderful memory, though.

    February 24, 2012 at 7:29 pm
  • Absolutely stunning shots – admittedly i’ve never looked for them, but i’ve never seen wintry grand canyon shots before, and the HDR work is superb!

  • You have been privileged to view what 99.9999% of the people in America will never see. Thanks for sharing. I ‘ve been to the Canyon many times, but I’ve never seen it in blue.

    February 24, 2012 at 8:24 pm
    • Yes, it was like looking at another dimension for the first time…. kinda creepy!

      February 24, 2012 at 10:10 pm
  • I was just in Mojave National Preserve last weekend, a few hours west of the Grand Canyon. I’m in LOVE with this landscape. You’ve captured some amazing images that are magazine worthy for sure, and they still don’t even come close to the real thing (I’ve been to the Grand Canyon as well). I’m sure standing there before taking these great pictures you were just breathless…

    February 24, 2012 at 8:25 pm
  • very amazing…

    February 24, 2012 at 8:35 pm
  • Wow! I have yet to make it out there to see the Grand Canyon myself, but it will be happening! My family already visited without me (I was studying abroad at the time) and I oohed and aahed over my sister’s pictures. I guess it makes sense but I had no idea it ever snowed out there! What beautiful pictures! I can’t wait to see it for myself. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Great work, exceptional! Brought me back over 35 years; it’s so familiar! It was my first sunrise on the south rim, cold and very cloudy. I was mightily disappointed that these annoying clouds were covering my view! Thank you so much for sharing such work!

    February 24, 2012 at 11:00 pm
  • The pastel hues are very lovely. I like the subtlety even better than your hdr versions,but thats my opinion only.

    February 24, 2012 at 11:22 pm
  • Holy cow, your photos are just gorgeous and make me want to go in the winter, but then those beautiful blue shots are just breathtaking! I put on pinterest to relive it over and over again!

    February 24, 2012 at 11:23 pm
  • Magical… just magical. You have taken some very gorgeous photographs. Excellent work! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Grand Canyon is such a beautiful place on the planet, and I myself would love to go there someday. it just looks so serene, doesn’t it? The way it looks in the wintertime makes it looks that much more enchanting.

    Thanks for posting these marvelous photographs! I want to see more from you.

    Today’s Note is a Reblog of “The Beautiful Grand Canyon in Blue” by Monica. It describes a stop at the Grand Canyon during winter. I enjoyed the narrative of the trip but the real showstealer is the photography. The post features some really sharp photographs of South Rim vistas. The Canyon is always breathtaking, but snow makes for an exceptional view. I really recommend this post.

    February 25, 2012 at 6:52 am
  • Absolutely beautiful pictures. Love the sense of distant grandness contrasted with the delicacy of the snow dusting tiny ledges. Also love the hint of warm red rock under blue cold. Breathtaking… clouds of vapour. More!

  • Wonderful pictures of the Canyon. My husband and I enjoyed going there. We also loved Bryce Canyon in Utah if you get a chance to visit. It is even more accessible in our opinion.

    The Grand Canyon is so beautiful and relaxing. The blue skies are eye catching. When I went to Las Vegas, Nevada I saw a beautiful view from the plane. What a sight to see. Actually, I was thinking about visiting, however; when I was in the area. The Grand Canyon was not available for visitors. I do plan to visit soon. The people in this photo appear to be very happy and excited.

Had a wonderful, home cooked like meal at the Bright Angel Restaurant which really hit the spot. I just wrote a post about our trip too but focused on the poverty and stray dogs we witnessed in the area.

  • When I saw your breathtakingly surreal beautiful photos of your trip to the Grand Canyon I was reminded of the song “What a difference a day makes” Only this time what a difference in the dominant color of the photography. To me it emphasized the grandeur of the Grand Canyon. A natural wonder right here in the USA. You both I think are lucky to visit it. The photos make the natural wonder look like an eerie landscape of a distant planet. I mean this as a compliment.

    February 25, 2012 at 4:51 pm
  • Your photos are so breathtaking! They made me feel as if I were really there!

    February 25, 2012 at 5:25 pm
  • I am not fortunate enough to have seen the Grand Canyon myself in person, but after seeing your pictures, I’d really like to go, now! They’re simply breathtaking!

    Thank you for sharing such a unique experience of one of the great natural beauties of the world with us, and congratulations on being Freshly Pressed!

  • We traveled east and north of the Grand Canyon earlier this year. So many amazing landscapes in the Colorado Plateau. I noticed a side shot from the Bone Yard in Las Vegas. That is one of my favorite places for great contrast in color and symbolism.

  • Beautiful! I was there once, many years ago, we too drive from vegas. It was fogged in when we got there. Unfortunately, the fog never lifted for us to see what you did.

    These took my breath away. I’ve been to the Grand Canyon, but in Summer. I’m convinced it’s more beautiful in winter.Thank you for sharing these photos.

  • What great photos! I have been to The Grand Canyon once and would love to go back. I love seeing the canyon looking so blue. Seems like so many people visit in the summer, so fun to see it in a different light!

  • Wow those pictures are spectacular. I have never had a desire to go and see the Canyon but those pictures really took my breath away. Maybe I’ll change my mind and talk the hubs into it.

  • Fantastic photos! Thanks for sharing! Was there in July 2003 and seeing these pictures wants me to go back again. Although it was much easier to visit while living in Colorado than where I’m now (Stockholm, Sweden). ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Stunning! Thank ou for taking them. I’m sitting across the world, looking at your pictures and feeling very privileged. The Grand Canyon is rightly one of the wonders of the world I never knew before that it has moods.

  • Your photos are beautiful. This just adds more incentive for me to go to the Grand Canyon this year. Although I won’t get to see it in the same color scheme you did, I know it will be an incredible experience.

  • Stunning! Just stunning!

    The Grand Canyon has been on my to-see list for the longest time. The HDR really makes the photos look great, a surprising contrast between the colors in them and the non-HDR photos.

    February 27, 2012 at 9:41 am
  • SPECTACULAR scenery! Personally, I feel the HDR ‘killed’ the natural feeling to the pictures, they could be better, but the original ones are much better in my opinion ๐Ÿ™‚
