As you are taking pictures from the North Rim, remember you are shooting directly into the sun.

Went to the N R twice; thought we really missed something on the first visit. Confirmed to us we did not.

Yes, I knew about the side roads and the hiking - some or both of which many cannot do for one reason or another.

Have been to the S R many times. Have award winning photography. Most photographs you see of the GC are from the S R.

Well, thanks for the advice. Wife and I are going to possibly change our stops to take in some of your advice. Me, I just drive. I have determined it is better to let her decide where we are going.

We'll keep trying to get you back to the North Rim Lauren, Sometimes looking into the sun has advantages;

considering your wife's condition the north rim may be to high for her comfort.
you might consider a helicopter or fixed wing tour of canyon,having done both and visited both sides i enjoyed the view from the air flying through the canyon the most.what ever you decide they all are spectacular. you can't go wrong.

I have won 2 awards for images shot right into the sun - but one was sunrise and one at sunset; not midday.

I will go back to NR if you give me a winning Powerball ticket. The top prize only.

Will be back to the S R for 5 days this Sept.
