Grand Canyon

Both of these 7" x 11" drawings were made on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

I have been here on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon since Thursday eve. It is amazing! The colors and shapes are constantly changing. The moon has been growing bigger each night. It rises opposite of the sunset, making twilight more magical than usual.

Tomorrow morning I journey over the edge of the rim to hike down to Indian Gardens. I will spend one night there before moving on to Phantom Ranch, which is just on the other side of the Colorado River from here (no worries, there is a bridge!). At Phantom Ranch I will have art supplies and diet coke waiting for me as I have hired a mule to cart my stuff down there. I feel so aristocratic hiring a mule! After 2 nights at Phantom Ranch I will again surrender my supplies to a mule before hiking back to Indian Gardens, for one last night below the rim.
