Here, we gaze over the ridge called Freya Castle 7,299' (2,225m)
It is about 275 million years old. In Norse mythology, Freya was
a goddess of fruitfulness and love.
Beyond her, is the Colorado River...
"Too thick to drink, too thin to plow"
The colorful wall is the Palisades of the Desert -
marking the eastern edge of the Grand Canyon.
Where the southern edge of this cliff ends (on the right)
is where the Little Colorado joins the Colorado.
Just right of this, is the South Rim. And if you squint
and look closely - you'll see a tiny little protrusion on the top...
this is the Watch Tower at Desert View, about a mile away.
Frank and I have both shown this before:
Above this, in the shadow of a cloud, is a little mesa called
Cedar Mountain. At 7,061' (2,152m), it is a remnant of
younger rock formations that have been washed away
almost everywhere else near the Grand Canyon
by millions of years of erosion.
I'll be without my computer again.... for at least a few days...
