My winter of play is over but that’s not so bad because I’m back at Grand Canyon where I work for the summer.
The North Rim doesn’t open until May 15th so the park is very quiet. A wonderful time to revisit old haunts without the crowds. So Saturday I went for a ride on the Scenic road.
Saw this wild Tom turkey and wondered if he was hiding in the park as it’s turkey hunting season in the adjacent Kaibab National Forest.
I’d never noticed this little window in the rocks below the Vista Encantada overlook.
No traffic meant stopping in the middle of the road for otherwise impossible to take photos.
The currants are already in bloom along with a few other flowers near the rim. Seems just a little too early for spring at 8200 feet.
Only a little snow left in the shadows.
But still a few pools of water on the meadows where I saw this lifer bird, a white-faced ibis.
It’s so nice to be back at Grand Canyon for the season. Hope you’ll come for a visit.
