Grand Canyon Day 2 (2/2)

Here are more photos taken with my smartphone.  I will post closeups, taken with the digital camera, at a later date.  There were more clouds today, as a storm front was moving in to the area, so there are small pockets of shadows which moved quickly over the landscape.

Large, black ravens were among the several birds which put on quite a show over the Canyon.  I will address the birds and their behavior in a separate post, possibly tomorrow.  I did get these two pictures which give you some idea just how big they are.  Ravens are part of the same family as crows but are considerably larger.  They are jet black and are beautiful creatures.  They are also supposed to be extremely intelligent.
