People on vacation hope for the perfect weather. While at the Grand Canyon, I hoped for stormy weather. The shadows and changing light allow for shading rather than the rocks being washed out by the sun. Watching a storm slowly cross from west to east while I worked a shift at the Yavapai Geology Museum was a treat. Seeing it snow in portions of the canyon, knowing you were watching a storm system that was 10 miles away was fascinating. Having the sun poke through the clouds at sunset was unbelievably beautiful. I hope you enjoy the stormy weather through a few of my many, many pictures.
