Skies from our Trip

We were camping recently at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone.
Our first stop was the North Rim where we were greeted by mostly clear skies.
When we got to Yellowstone and our campsite on the Madison we were treated to a few clouds and sprinkles.
At Norris Geyser Basin the sky seemed to come to Earth as the steam rose up to meet it.
As we left Yellowstone the sky had turned an unrelenting blue, a promise of hot days to come, time to head for home.



















For those who might be wondering, yes, we did see Gaelyn and Mike when we were at the Grand Canyon.  We had a lovely visit and got some tips on where to hike.














These have been some of the skies we saw on our recent trip, to see other skies from around the world visit Sandy and Sylvia at SkyWatch, Friday.

Ah, Grand Canyon and Yellowstone are 2 of my favorite place. How fun that you saw Gaelyn and Mike. They surely are the experts on where to go and what to see at Grand Canyon.

Hooray for you -- wonderful camping trip, lovely to meet Gaelyn and Mike -- beautiful pictures. We did a car roadtrip out of Colorado =- stayed in motels, very different for us. Saw some great country. I really hope we get to go back to Gr Cyn and Yellowstone again someday -- such beautiful country.

Your photos inspire me to see this area. There has never seemed to be enough time or sufficient funds to travel, but I have to figure out a way. I don't know Gaelyn and Mike, but loved their photo. Thanks for the wonderful tour!
