This is me, in front of the sign, on the way to the west rim of the Grand Canyon, getting hit with a snowball.

Now I'm not very familiar with Arizona, but I'm pretty sure there SHOULDN'T BE SNOW!

Second attempt to see the Grand Canyon: fail. Maybe next time.

wow, perfect timing
I hope this was the first try at this shot.

Totally fav'd for aesthetic appearances and highlighting the Climategate scandal. :)

there was so much snow on my first trip to the grand canyon. i couldn't see very far. it was kind of a bummer.

on a side note, i lived in arizona for nine years before i made that trip. i moved to tennessee a few months later.

I've been there. Some fond memories driving through AZ in a tour van....been through there many times when it was snowing...always kind of surreal.

Nice pic.

Could you not get the the rim because of the snow? Just curious because we are going to be there in a little over a week.

@ozzynelson It was the first try! Helps that I have burst mode tho.

@hale We had no idea it ever snowed there. Guess we have been educated. We never made it outside of Vegas / Hoover Dam / Grand Canyon; maybe next time!

@dunkleswiftkick We could have made it to the rim if we wanted to pay a tour bus ~$40 a head (we went to west point); but seeing was how we couldn't see anything, we just called it a loss and "good story" and went back to Vegas.
