That thick ball of white fluff adds a certain drama to the canyon, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It does indeed, Ray!

I think you can just sit her for a whole day and never be bored with what you see, Elizabeth. Love this overview. I never see the "Grand Canyon and snow" together, but then what do I know....
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So true, Astrid. We never get tired of going to the Canyon! Thank you, Astrid!
What a fabulous mood in the Canyon that I never see elsewhere, Elizabeth, except from you and Frank. We're so lucky.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Ginnie! I'm happy we can bring you some fresh views!

the clouds hanging over the canyon is just unfathomable

so very beautiful
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Low weather in the Canyon is always so impressive to me. The snow would melt before it hit the floor, about a mile below us here. Thank you so much, Sherri!
What a difference a snow makes.....smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, it does, Frank! Thank you! XOX

I especially like layers in this with the blue and the white and then the reds. Did any of the snow reach the canyon floor or wall ledges?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Alan! The north rim - across the canyon got quite a bit - but everything south just saw it turn to rain, then mist, then nothing...

I like being up with the clouds, I used to look at them as a child and wonder how being their.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do, too, chad! They still fascinate me!

a great image! And what a sky! Recently I read that the skies are often quite more fascinating in some parts of the States than the wide, lonely country.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Philine!
Oh yes - mountains and canyons easily make their own weather!
Good timing on your part to be there when this happend, did the snow melt before it got to the canyon floor?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - we went up specifically because of the weather forecast!
The snow collected on the North Rim - across the Canyon here... but because rain on the South Side where we were (1,000' lower). Snow will sometimes collect on the walls of the Canyon during a good snow storm, and a cold day - but it will never reach the floor- a mile down and a minimum of 20 degrees warmer.

What a great picture - must have been cold.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Louis! It was pretty chilly!
If I insist on looking down, I feel dizzy.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh dear! Then don't look down! smile
