Is it the end of this year’s monsoon rain season? I couldn’t help thinking that yesterday as I walked out on the spine of limestone below Marble View on the Kaibab National Forest a few miles outside the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.

No clouds today. None. Nothing. And calm. Well, at least the air was about as clear as it gets anymore. The light was lovely: bright and crisp. I savored my perch from the northeast edge of the Kaibab Plateau, gazing down onto the Marble Platform from which the same layers I was standing on had been raised several thousand feet above the rest. To the north are the Vermilion Cliffs, to the upper right where Lees Ferry is located.
