Arizona's Eyjafjallajökull

I paid an unexpected visit to the Grand Canyon last Sunday night and all I came away with was this photo:

I'd've liked a more in-focus background but when you're in an empty, secluded parking lot late at night in Northern Arizona you start worrying about skinwalker attacks -- not a terribly conducive atmosphere for making sure your camera is in focus.

I was driving home from Utah when I was forced to make a bit of a detour because of forest fires just north of Flagstaff. Here's my route:


Who needs a fancy Mac or Photoshop when you have Microsoft Paint? Best image-editing software out there. Period.

My detour took me past the Grand Canyon. I'm a pretty in-the-zone traveler and I was already behind schedule but if people come from around the world to see the Grand Canyon, I might as well stop and snap a pic. So I did.


  1. Sounds like an adventure and a well taken picture of The Grand Canyon at night. That sucks Flagstaff is burning.

  2. Is "I'd've" a real contraction? If it's not, it should be.

  3. P.S. I didn't know Skinwalkers put out fires, too (as shown in your picture). Ha.
