This week's blog post: The title of this blog reflects the natural markers of this National Park. Driving on I-40 in northeastern Arizona, you see a landscape of high desert with subtle tones of gray-green and brown desert foliage. You don't see high mountains, tall trees, deep canyons, massive dunes, or huge signs letting you know you're approaching a national park. See this week's blog post => jhp.ph/2KlXX9E .

I love the character that weathered trees show. This tree caught my eye for three reasons: it was isolated, its rugged look, and the way the light highlighted its texture. The background also played an essential role in making this scene work. After all, how can you go wrong with the Grand Canyon, low clouds on the horizon, and a blue sky! I found this subject on our third day in the Grand Canyon at Moran Point, just off Desert View Drive during golden hour.

The View of the Colorado River from Mohave Point is spectacular, as it snakes its way down the canyon, carving out a beautiful scene. The Colorado River is visible on most points along the rim, but along the central part of the canyon, the river does hide with only short portions showing.
