Purple Rain in the Grand Canyon (Grand Canyon National Park)

Three years ago we spent a week hiking and photographing in the Grand Canyon. During that time we were treated to some pretty nasty weather – flash storms and abnormal amounts of rain for the middle of the dessert. However, that meant that we were also treated to some pretty sweet skies at sunset – this night in particular a storm was approaching over the canyon and the setting sun lit up the rain and made a nice purple streak as it swept across the canyon.

I’d love to go back one day but maybe next time check out Horsehoe Bend on the North Rim.
