The sky is up to it!
Frank L Croston.: It was a great sky that day, Ray.
Ce doit être un peu monotone de conduire sur cette route. Jolie photo avec ce beau ciel.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Martine, I have to agree, its not the most interesting of roads, which makes what is at the end of it all the more remarkable !
What a great sky that day! Nicely captured, sir!
Frank L Croston.: It was indeed, Elizabeth. Thank you M'am.

You would never guess that in a few miles you'd come to the biggest damn trench in the world Frank!
Frank L Croston.: You wouldn't Chris, its quite remarkable.

That was my first thought the first time I came across the Canyon. I expected to enter a quite a defined hilly/mourntainous area and then find the Canyon running through that. But I'd forgotten that I'm already at around 7000ft(?)! Love the sky here.
Frank L Croston.: Thats right Alan, I remember my first visit, I was thinking, 'where is it ?' Super sky that day.
Immensité à  perte de vue ...magnifique
Frank L Croston.: Yes indeed Claudine, thank you.

Yes - it does look endless
Frank L Croston.: Its like this for almost 360deg' Elisabeth.
So it is advisable to watch where you are going
Frank L Croston.: Watch out for Deer, Elk, and tourists, Bill !

It would be annoying to take a wrong turning off a road like this. What is in store along this road. My guess is a petrol station.
Frank L Croston.: There is that, plus two airfields, and a small town....
I think the same every time I set off for Fleetwood,
Frank L Croston.: You know what you'll find in Fleetwood...smile
My goodness, it's flat!
Frank L Croston.: For a few miles, then suddenly ....!

Quite more sky thasn earth - you feel like a lilliputian.
Frank L Croston.: We do get great/ big skies here.
Oh Oh! Keeping us in suspense. I am really hoping you are not a flat-Earther. What a lovely scene above!
Frank L Croston.: Don't tell me you are not !! smile Great sky that day Mary.
I believe this is the same road our tour bus took on the way to the Canyon, Frank. Talk about a big sky!
Frank L Croston.: It probably would be Beverley, it leads to the South rim main entrance. Great sky that day.
A fine shot, expect the unexpected. Just outside Nottingham is Cresswell Crags, not very large compared with the canyon obviously but you could drive by and not know it is there apart from signposts, it goes down from ground levelbut is well worth a visit.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Brian.Not far from where I took this is Red Mountain, a hidden gem, an extraordinary place that most people just drive by.
a big and beautiful sky Frank...don't let Ellie drive into the canyon as you shoot pictures....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Ha, ha...No likelihood of that Peter.
