Photo Journal: Grand Canyon Village, Arizona - January 2019

Why would anyone get up at 4:30am to stumble to the edge of the Grand Canyon in the middle of Winter? Here are a few reasons. These images would have been impossible any other time of day AND without crampons (and cameras).  The canyon edge was thick with ice these mornings.  Perfect inch-long ice spikes.  Maybe deadly without.

Not wearing spikes: the park's mule deer.  This one photographed inches from the canyon rim.
