In keeping with the theme of sharing images from my recent month long trip on the Grand Canyon, here is a panorama stitch which combines 7 vertical images. I did not grab my 14mm for this hike, so I resolved the larger view by stitching images together. This scene is located pretty early on during the river voyage, and we arrived at camp early enough to squeeze in a hike. The overlook shows President Harding Rapids (right), and Eminence camp (barely visible on the left-our rafts are tied up along the sandy beach there). While the light is pretty hot in this frame, at least it is relatively perpendicular to the scene, offering some shadow and contrast. Trip leader Hugh Rose and I continued the hike up to the Canyon rim (actually, it was more of a scramble). We scurried 4000 vertical feet, up and down in about 4 hours. It was a fantastic view from the top, but the light was horrible for shooting. This was my first hike in the desert, and it was also my first lesson about cactai! You really need to watch your feet when hiking in this country.
