Morning on the South Rim

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

The winter weather on the top of the Grand Canyon is colder than most visitors probably expect (note the snow on the bottom left of the picture) and the sun sits low in the sky throughout the course of the day. Sometimes, however, the clouds roll in and keep enough of the cold away for the weather to be comfortable, particularly for anyone who is doing any hiking.
