Если бы мне сказали выбрать только одно место, которое я бы хотела посетить в Америке, я бы выбрала Гранд Каньон... ⠀ Величественный! Необъятный! Захватывающий! ⠀ Передать словами эмоции, которые испытываешь, находясь там, невозможно! Столько энергии, столько пространства и воздуха! Это невероятное ощущение того, сколько лет, столетий этому месту, и сколько еще столетий река Колорадо будет упорно прокладывать свой путь через камень, а Каньон расти⛰️ ⠀ Мы спустились 3 мили вниз, и поднялись 3 мили наверх... ...мечта осуществилась❤️

$240/month The cost to rent a spot in Grand Canyon National Park. The drama. The light. The layers, textures, and colors ... Priceless. Enduring some "rough" duty putting the new Hyperlite Dirigo 2 through the paces

Canyon Inversion - Inversions in the Grand Canyon are rare. Being 2,000' below the rim of the Western Canyon in the middle of one is far rarer yet. For hours the canyon breathed with clouds oozing in and out of these massive drainages below the Esplanade level. Yet the clouds couldn't breach the Esplanade platform without being dissipated away. It was like watching a supernatural event waiting for an alien creature to emerge from the mist. This was a moment to remember.

Winter Falls - Even in the winter giant Grand Canyon waterfalls produce tiny islands of green in a sea of the dead.

Grand Canyon is stacked with stunning slot canyons, magical waterfalls, and hidden grottos. Garden Creek is a favorite of many as it features big drops, high volume falls, and fun down climbs. Bill Church is just getting started down the punchy 400ft drop shown in this photo. @cliffcolor #cliffcolor #grandcanyon #nationalparks #grandcanyonnationalpark #publiclands #coloradoplateau #explorearizona #desert #explorearizona #hikearizona #hikeaz #travelarizona #arizonaliving #arizonadesert #canyoning #canyoneering #igsouthwest #grandcanyoneering

The Grand Canyon is a beautiful place, but it definitely takes out of you the cost of its beauty should you choose to enter in. #grandcanyoneering Thanks to @life_of_zion for letting me in on this adventure.

Happy B-day Maj. John Wesley Powell. He would have been 185 years old today. He was the first to run the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in 1869 and was an astute observer of the arid west. While river running has changed since his pioneering journey, we're fortunate that the majesty of the place has not. Powell realized that water was the real gold in the west and advocated for rational water management policies that were ignored until the disastrous dust bowl in the 20's and 30's. We responded with dams upon dams upon dams to store water. The Grand Canyon, while currently suffering from a changed river ecosystem as a result of dams, was nearly submerged in the 1960's dam building exuberance. It was eventually saved by public outcry. The Colorado River serves 40 million people today and the two decade old drought is reminding us about what Powell already knew. Sometimes, if you look hard, you can even see the gold in the water.

Walking tapeats ledges above what was once considered one of the best technical slots in the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately, all access to the water course of this slot was closed in 2012 🤨😤. For now, all we can do is walk around and drool. #grandcanyon #grandcanyoneering

Confidence - During a long backpack in the Grand Canyon last year we were hit with a high wind storm event. Classic free standing tents were flattened right on top of their occupants pounding them like a drum between gusts. A good nights sleep was hard to come by. Some of my friends were grumpy come morning. Why does lightweight mean that you compromise storm worthiness? Hyperlite Mountain Gear has been making lightweight minimalist storm worthy shelters for years mainly used by experts comfortable with tarp or pyramid shelter systems that lack floors and other creature comforts. I'm pretty thrilled to see Hyperlite launch a new tent called Dirigo for mainstream backpackers who insist on bomber weather-ability first, but want something much lighter than tents you find in REI. Better yet, it has a built in bathtub floor, bug netting, and other comforts found on heavier products providing peace of mind from the mice, snakes and scorpions that roam around at night. At 28 ounces it sleeps two. This is one of my favorite photos with my Dirigo tent while testing last year. When the weather was spitting mad, I was always comfortable inside keeping the big camera dry. It was so confidence inspiring. It packs small and gives me a lightweight boost during those hard exits to the canyon rim that are not optional. Bravo Hyperlite!

Pressure Wash - Invisible from the rim and the river of the Grand Canyon, this slot canyon always has water flow, but on this day it was 'blow your feet off the wall' swift. In fact it was the swiftest I've seen in 15+ descents. Many of us lost footing on the way down unceremoniously kissing the wall. Helmets damped the collision between skull and rock. We rigged a few contingent anchors for added safety, did some fireman's belays, and proceed to get the full body pressure wash on the way down scoring another win for drysuits. It's hard to fathom water slicing 2 billion year old rock like a can opener on a tuna can, but it can and does with enough time. As a friend says, "geology is happening." @pedromcbride manages to barely keep his feet while enduring the onslaught of water with 200' of rope to go to the bottom of the waterfall.

Good times in narrow places. #grandcanyoneering #grandcanyon

Fire & Ice - In the Grand Canyon people die in the Summer because they can't find water. In winter you can find swimming pools where you can't get a drink. It's a killing paradox. It was dawn of day 3 on a long trip from the boats 2,500 feet above the Colorado river and it was biting cold. We were about to descend a slot canyon that required long swims. This canyon was so remote that it had only been descended 3 times since we did the first descent 10 years ago. We wondered if the canyon would be full of ice??? Fortunately it wasn't. Drysuits for the win to make this possible in winter! The canyon was as amazing as I remembered 10 years ago. Some swims were filled in with gravel, others were swims that didn't exist before. There were slots in all 3 limestone layers. One of the best things about river trips (to me anyway) is getting to places inaccessible from the rim in winter. The entire 3 day loop was .... drop dead gorgeous. It was certainly one of the highlights of the trip for me.

Happy 100th birthday Grand Canyon National Park. Figuring that many photographers far better than me would post stunning pastel landscapes, I opted for the stark moody beauty of a black & white image taken 2,000 feet below the rim of the western Grand Canyon, again of my favorite summit - Mt. Sinyella. This seemed fitting today for celebration and sadness. Sadness because seven years ago today Ioana Elise Hociota fell to her death near here. Grand Canyon gives so much but it can also brutally take. Ioana and her husband Andrew Holycross had been diligently hiking their line through the South side of Grand Canyon. She had a few miles left to finish her Lee's Ferry to Diamond Creek line with the final leg from Diamond to Pearce already set a month later. It's hard not to miss Ioana and her indomitable spirit. Andrew is still one of my closest friends. He was with me on this trip below Great Thumb early last month when this photo was taken. As is often the case with 8 day winter trips, the canyon delivered a big snow storm making our exit to the rim more 'sporty' than originally planned.

Twelve river trips and this photo always eluded me. Mt. Sinyella is a beautiful desert tower standing 1,500' above the Esplanade floor. It's my favorite summit in all the Grand Canyon. I've photographed it from the air, the rim(s), walked around it multiple times, and shot it from nearly every imaginable angle. I even have this composition from prior river trips. But I really (really really) wanted a moody shot where Sinyella was capped in snow. This was finally my lucky break. The night before we camped at Upper Ledges. At dusk the winds kicked up and we watched a tent with the group at Lower Ledges blow into the river and promptly sink. Reflecting on our superb tent anchoring prowess, we all ran to our tent pads and added a few more rocks on the corner anchors to be sure that didn't happen to us! It rained hard and cold rain all night. Our kitchen crew showed their mettle with the rainy 4:30am coffee call. We needed an early start to set us up for another big adventure. We launched at 7:15am and I rowed to get well ahead of the rest of the group. As we passed Lower Ledges Camp one guy was on the groover waiving a 20 TP square surrender flag. Sinyella only comes into view for a short time. Mike St. Pierre took the oars while I fished the camera out of the ammo box and waited with anticipation on what I'd see. We rounded the corner just before the sunrise and the clouds were getting light. Oh man .... it was divine. I vacuumed most of the photons out of the scene onto my SD card before the other boats came around the corner.

After starting at the river a few hours earlier, we topped out to this ridiculous view - a massive gooseneck slicing through gorgeous colors and fresh snow on the North Rim. The more I see of this place, the more I realize there is to see.

I love #backcountrybreakfasts and all the in-between moments on epic adventures, like gear explosions at camp, sleeping out under the stars, and jointly reviewing terrible dehydrated backcountry meals... probably should’ve taken notes 🤔 @sstratts do you remember which ones were good/bad?? • I just got more pics from my lovely friend and pro-photographer @nuanaarpuq / @dbond84 of our #girlstrip back in Nov, so throwing it back to share a few! • #grandcanyoneering #numnumnumnum #makeithot #canyoneering #grandcanyon #outdoorwomen #backcountrywomen #shejumps #iamsj #girafficornnation

The Grand Canyon’s views are truly breathtaking and although you may only see a relatively small portion of it from its best vantage point, it has attracted many Canadians over the years. For those who like trekking but haven’t yet discovered this popular destination, discover a myriad of waterfalls at the Grand Canyon National park. The #inbiolink presents a description of each featured waterfall in the park and how they can be reached. . . #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnationalpark #grandcanyontrip #grandcanyontour #grandcanyontours #grandcanyonrafting #grandcanyoneering #grandcanyonnkrthrim #grandcanyonsunset #grandcanyonhiking #instadestination #instaphoto #exploremore

Making our way out of the Grand, step by precarious step. Took my not-so-favorite entrance to get to a spectacular canyon this weekend, followed by an 8-mile packraft, and an exit up this horrendously loose little gap in the redwall. But suffer sufficiently and the Grand more than gets you back!
