Photographer's Note

Taken on an enticing outcrop along the Transept Trail on the Grand Canyon's north rim. The Transept Trail runs from Bright Angel Point (below Grand Canyon Lodge) to the campground, a distance hiked of close to one and a half miles.

The north side of the canyon takes longer to drop to the Colorado River for two reasons. First, it's about 1,000 feet higher than the south rim and that contributes to the second reason. The higher elevation means it receives more precipitation, so there has been more erosion.

I played dodgem with the precipitation (rain) that day. I'd arrive at a location or trail and have a bit of sun, lots of clouds, and the more than occasional raindrop. It was challenging photographically,

ISO 200, f/18 at 1/200 second, 16mm focal length
