I walked thru all that snow to get this shot of the Watchtower at the Grand Canyon. I thought I never wanted to see snow, but that was because I had never seen it in Arizona. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. The memories I have of our meetup in Arizona and all the time I spent with my friends there will always be held close in my heart.

Thank you so much for the nomination OC!

    Yay! I am the 50th person to "fave" this shot. What a beauty it is, too. It shows you just how close to the edge they built the tower. We'll have to go again. I'll be the guide! BB

    This image made me smile. Beyond the grandeur of the canyon the next thought out of the chute was... 'how much higher does one need to be'? The final image ---> Monty Python: "You don't frighten us, English pig dogs. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called "Arthur King," you and all your silly English K-nig-hts." Great shot.
