I hope this image explains why I’m in love with the night sky! Crystal clear sky on the edge of the Grand Canyon. @natgeocreative @natgeo @grandcanyonnps #grandcanyon #arizona #utah #astrophotography #nightsky

Major John Wesley Powell was born in Mount Morris, New York, on this date in 1834. He later served in the Civil War, where he lost his right arm at the Battle of Shiloh. Nevertheless, the soldier, scientist and explorer went on to become the first white man to raft the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. He designed his own boats and gathered a makeshift crew of ex-trappers, mountain men and Civil War veterans like himself. The expedition launched four boats from Green River, Wyoming, on May 24, 1869. Eventually, they made it through, but most of his notes were lost, so he gathered another crew, this time of amateur scientists and educated men, and began a second expedition on May 22, 1871, again from Green River, Wyoming, entering the Grand Canyon at Lee’s Ferry on August 17, 1872. Of Arizona‘s world-famous natural wonder, he said: “The wonders of the Grand Canyon cannot be adequately represented in symbols of speech, nor by speech itself. The resources of the graphic art are taxed beyond their powers in attempting to portray its features. Language and illustration combined must fail.” In this photo, circa 1873, Powell poses with Tau-Gu, the chief of the Paiutes. The photo is from Powell‘s second expedition. There are no photos from the first.

Thursday, March 23, 7:45 am. Only a dusting of snow in #GrandCanyon Village. However expect snow, ice & slow travel on area highways south of the park: I-40, I-17, SR 89A and US 89. ADOT is out plowing this morning -mq #azwx [image description: Exhibit sign in foreground covered with snow. Someone has written the words Grand Canyon with their finger in the snow also drawn an arrow pointing towards and overcast and stormy view of Grand Canyon beyond.]

Did y'all know that I have a little behind the scenes account? I post some silly things there... so if you're interested in seeing a different side of me, go check out @bts_nakedinthewild. Cheers! (Also, peep that pyramid like formation in the distance behind me! It's called the Zoroaster Temple, and it's my favorite rock in the Canyon.) // #grandcanyon #findyourpark #behindthescenes #zoroastertemple

Finally got back to Ohio today and I already want to go back to Phoenix! I had an awesome time with @amberrwoodby traveling all night just to see the sunrise at the Grand Canyon, exploring Sedona, meeting the awesome people that came to my first YouTube meetup, and hanging out with some of the coolest people I know in Phoenix. Big thanks to @maxxmayberry and everyone for letting us stay🙌🏻 I'll have videos of the trip up soon! #youtube #reviveskateboards #arizona #grandcanyon

The #GrandCanyon just keeps going and going! Can't believe some of these trees and valleys are more than a mile away! #MindBlown #Route66 #AmericanSouthWest #RoadTrip

Been down in #Arizona and #Nevada getting recharged with the family. Here's a shot of two #ravens looking over the vastness of the #GrandCanyon . We have had a great time driving from #Sedona to #LakeHavasu yesterday and went north from snowy #Flagstaff into the hot deserts beyond. Glad I am here with my son and my travel companion for life @deslee_

Observing sunrise over the Grand Canyon must be the best way to close out any road trip through Arizona. Thank you to all the rad people for making it a trip to remember!

Luv, King of all picnic tables. 7 years ago a 4-month-old pup was delivered to me. A pup saved from a kill shelter by a woman’s love and driven from Kentucky to New Jersey through a rescue organization. Back then I thought I saved you, but oh the good fortune you’ve brought me. Special thanks to Kylenn and the german shorthaired pointer nj rescue.⠀
