Grand Canyon North Rim Pictures
Looking south from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, which is located in Arizona, you can see 70 miles away; on the horizon is the San Francisco Mts. and Humphreys Peak which is the highest point in AZ. The scientific community cannot seem to agree on the age of the Grand Canyon; some say 7 million years and some say 70 million years. Either way, pictures do not fully portray its perpetual beauty.
North Rim Coconino Sandstone
The white cliff layer called Coconino Sandstone can be seen surrounding the Grand Canyon. The layer varies in thickness; from 50 to 60 feet thick at the east and west ends of the canyon to over 600 feet in the middle of the park. The light colored rock reminds me of Coquina Stone, a limestone quarried in Mexico.
Angles Gate & Deva Temple
Looking from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon you see the pointed peak of Angels Gate located just behind Deva Temple and its saddle that extends to the left. To the left of Angles Gate is the western end of Wotans Throne.
Grand Canyon Coyote
Grand Canyon North Rim Sunset
Walk to Bright Angle Point
Grand Canyon Mule Deer
On a clear day you can see the San Francisco Mts. from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The scientific community may not agree on the age of the Canyon, but they cannot argue about the perpetual beauty of Gods Creation.
Included in the pictures above are Angles Gate, Deva Temple, Brahma Temple, Zoroaster Temple and the western end of Wotans Throne. Some of the photos are taken on a walk out to Bright Angel Point, where the trail is narrow and bordered by steep sheer rock cliffs.
Sunset pictures are taken from the back balcony of the North Rim Lodge, located in Grand Canyon Arizona.
Animal pics include the Coyote and Mule Deer foraging for food.
