The Canyon When it Snows

While we were at the Grand Canyon, it snowed! There was snow on the ground when we drove in, late on our first night, and when we woke up the next morning, it was snowing! For a snow-loving-and-deprived Aussie, this was a beautiful and amazing thing. Because we'd never driven in snow before, and didn't really want to, we decided to walk up to the gate of the Park to see if it was open and what the conditions were like up there for parking and so on.




















Yes, we were literally walking by the side of the road. We were really very lucky that no one skidded off the road and hit us...



















It was truly like a winter wonderland...





















































This tape amused me no end.



















Beware elk! We never actually saw any, but we did see a young deer...
