The above image was taken from the infamous Toroweap Point of the Grand Canyon. It is located in a very remote section on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon that took 4 hours, 2 blown tires, and lots of swearing up a rough 4x4 mountain trail just to reach this majestic view. This is one of the only views of the Grand Canyon where one can stand alone on the edge and look 4000 feet straight down with no fences, no crowds, and no structures anywhere in sight.
Below are a few images from the area surrounding Page, Arizona where I stayed while photographing the Slot Canyons. The desert Southwest contains such simplistic beauty when one takes the time to venture into the emptiness and look around.
