“The Grand Canyon is living evidence of the power of water over a period of time. The power may not manifest immediately. Water can be very powerful, like a tidal wave.”

I know it was long overdue, but I just finished reading The Emerald Mile. This book brilliantly tells the story of the Grand Canyon speed record set during the massive spring runoff of 1983. The story lays out the human history of the Canyon, the politics surrounding its conservation, and the epic adventure of running a river at flood levels. It’s a great read and I highly recommend it! It has me nostalgic about my own trips to Grand Canyon and looking forward to the next!
Ended up cutting the Southwest / CO trip short. Some times you just gotta cut your losses and move on while your still ahead. When it comes to shooting landscapes you I’d say that maybe 7-8/10 golden hours don’t go as you’d like them to. Then add the government shut down closing access off to a lot of the places I intended on venturing out too lol, this was one for the books!
