Five star sunrise

Monday 30th October. By Paul

Hiking in the Grand Canyon with 8L of water, we are looking for a “dry” campsite. Not relying on a nearby water source gives us freedom to find a stunning place to put up our tent.

We choose a site at the top of a cliff, directly above the Colorado river. The views create vertigo – the drop-off to the river is over 500m, and we camp on a spur so views are both ways.

The sunset was gorgeous but paled in comparison to the fire in the sky the next morning. Colours changed from pink to yellow then to red again. The camera was put to extensive use but as always doesn’t capture how extraordinary the moment.

Our first blog, five star tent, was a six month project in parallel with a journey on foot and by kayak from Alaska to Patagonia. Now back to real life, Jodie is inspired to start blogging again, just a little bit, with photo theme hop.
