Golden Hour At The Grand Canyon


I can still remember my first experience of standing at the edge of the Grand Canyon and looking into it. It was so awesome, it took a fair amount of restraint to prevent me from jumping into it, because I was certain I could fly.  – Mark Goulston


I was so overwhelmed the first time I experienced Grand Canyon that I started to cry. I don’t cry easily..

Look, Simba. Everything the light touches is our kingdom. – Mufasa



Have you experienced Grand Canyon up close? What was you reaction? If you haven’t yet, I can highly recommend to put it on your bucket list!

When your spirit cries for peace, come to a world of canyons deep in the old land.

Wash your spirit clean. – John Muir



In the Grand Canyon Arizona has a natural wonder which is in kind absolutely unparalleled throughout the rest of the world.

– Theodore Roosevelt

I agree. These photos is of the South Rim, of Grand Canyon (AZ.) Photos taken right before, and during sunset last Saturday.


I loved being able to share this experience with my daughter, and I asked a stranger to take a photo of us. She was very sweet, and happy to do so. And I am very happy that you let me share the experience with you! I hope your week is fabulous!

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

  2. I never been though was so close, within 20 miles believe it or not. Always a regret that my family didn’t stop (I was a teenager). Though my husband was on a 21 day fire assignment about 15 years ago and he was camped out on the North Rim and had the best views. He had it to himself the entire time, can you imagine that!! Crazy! One of these days I hope to see it.

    1. I so hope you get to see it Margaret! Maybe you need to take a trip to see me when I get settled on my homestead, during one of the summer months when you’re husband is working out of town? I would love to take you to Grand Canyon.


  3. I’ve only flown over the GC, and it was awesome enough, therefore I can’t imagine being on the ground and seeing it up close. To think it was created over millions of years by a river flowing through it…mind-blowing!
