South rim photos

We took one of my dad's friends to the GC s rim this past Sunday and it was very nice. Not as busy as I expected it to be. Took a picnic lunch and ate at grand view point. Very nice. It rained so it wasn't as hot as it could have been and smelled very nice. The only bad thing is that smoke from the California fires and local small fires made it very smokey.

We did the loop from Williams to Cameron to Flagstaff and back left about 9 am got home at 7:30pm. I hate to say it but was very dissapointed in the jewelry that the Cameron trading post had. I found it kind of low quality tourist stuff (no offence to anyone). Though the prices weren't bad. They had a good selection of old pawn though which is very popular right now.

It was a nice day trip to get away from the normal weekend house cleaning. I've enclosed my photos for you all to enjoy.

Oh and if you are from the local area the shops at the GC s rim will give you a 10 % discount.

Your photos are so great! Thanks for sharing them with all of us.

Well, I have a longer than wait than the others that have posted. I've got 9 months, but time seems to pass quickly at my age. Going to be 57 y.o. in a few days. I was 16 y.o. the last and only time that I was at the GCNP.

DHL is a great photographer as she has showed many times. Yes,you could consider Cameron Trading post a tourist trap in a matter of speaking but sometimes little gems come up as we experienced (actually DW said that, I'm not into shopping there at all).

I like the monochrome photos - will have to try that with some of mine - never thought about doing that with GC photos!

Thanks for the photos! I'm starting to actually think we will get there in 2 weeks!

I love the sepia tone and b&w photo techniques. I'll have to try that on some of my photos!

Spectacular photos Dragonflylady.

I had decided not to go back to the GC as had been there in 1991. Your photos have made me re-evaluate our itinerary.
