The Grand Canyon is a hard place…all those rocks, the extreme weather…even the trees we showed you are abbreviated and tough in order to exist.
One plus: the low Arizona humidity sure keeps down the bugs!
It also keeps down the cute wild flowers we’re used to seeing everywhere else.
I’ve spent so much time with the amazing canyon sights that I’ve not captured all the flowers we have seen…all are tiny, and most are buds on bushes.
Still, the plants that scratch out their existence around here provide pleasant visual relief in various ways.
