The Grand Canyon really is grand! On this day a bunch of us climbed up above the Colorado river and followed Tapeats creek on our way up to Thunder river. It was fairly nice when we left and we were following the creek up through this beautiful mini canyon when the clouds thickened, the temperature dropped and it actually started raining. We took a break by huddling up underneath a very large rock for an hour. When the rain stopped we could see it had snowed up above us! Here, in what I thought was desert? How awesome!
