Photos don't do the scale of this place justice. We arrived around noon today, after climbing the sand dunes early this morning. We had to drive through a mountain pass blizzard, which made me nervous, but Tim is a gentleman and drove slowly and carefully for me.
We arrived around noon, and started the drive around the South Rim. We skipped the short hikes that were available, as we didn't think any would give us as spectacular views as we got from the overlooks. Plus, it ranged from about 30-55 degrees, rain, snow, and bright sun, back and forth within the few hours we were there. This canyon is so deep in places, I couldn't even fit the entire depth of it in my camera's frame. These photos sadly do not give you the right depth and sense of scale.
We're sleeping at the KOA campground in town tonight, and on to Mesa Verde tomorrow.
