North Rim in the Sunshine

 

Thistle Heads on the North Rim   -   It's not all about the Canyon...

 

The North Rim of the Grand Canyon, on the Kaibab Plateau,

stands at over 8,000 feet

A beautiful wilderness with a vast array of flora and fauna

Frank proposed to me here, and so we returned on our honeymoon

A magical place, every inch of it... Majestic, is the word

 

 


 

 

Computer's in the shop....

Need I say more...   :-(

Ha Ha

I am imagining Frank on one knee among the thistles, and hoping that pain was just a thistle thorn rather than a gila monster...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well - it was earlier in the year, and there was a lovely bed of wildflowers... no thistles yet... smile
(No gila monsters up here!)
Majestic indeed Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: If only you could see it Richard!

Frank crooned the proposal, much like Van? I hope you took a bottle of crisp cold Chardonnay along for the celebration ...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Very much so... smile
You and Frank are blowing me away with your images this week, this is an amazing picture, everything is so right, as it was then when your fellow went down on bended knee, well I hope he did anyway.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Gosh - such a compliment, Brian! Thank you so much!!!
No bended knee... but perfect none-the-less! smile
