These photos were taken looking south over the Canyon (North Rim) from the Grand Canyon Lodge using my smartphone camera. A storm system had moved through as I was coming in the Park entrance from the north. Upon arrival I first went to the Lodge, while it continued to rain off and on for about an hour. I kept moving around, taking pictures from many of the same vantage points so you will probably see similar or seemingly identical pictures but they were taken at different times under improving conditions.
I decided to make the trek out to the Overlook shown above. To do so, I first needed to go down the wet, metal staircase leading away from the Lodge…..
…. and then venture out the dirt and rock (and eventually paved) walkway to the Overlook platform itself. Some interesting views looking downward.
Working without a net….. Looking down near the Overlook walkway.
Going out onto the Overlook itself (while taking deep breaths).
Pay no attention to the sidewalk slowly deteriorating beneath your feet…..
