On my first page of pictures from the Grand Canyon (Photo Gallery #1), there is a photograph taken from the very same spot as this one was, along the Clear Creek Trail. It's such a spectacular spot, but this time the view was enhanced by the multitudinous wildflowers that bloom in March. The yellow flowers you see are called Brittlebush, and they were so plentiful along the trail that our legs turned yellow from brushing against their petals.
The labels on this photo show you some of the major features of the landscape visible below the Clear Creek Trail. You can see where the South Kaibab Trail, which we had come down the day before, descends to the river, and crosses the Black Bridge. Our campground the night before was near Phantom Ranch. The Silver Bridge leads to the Bright Angel Trail, which we would climb on our last (5th) day to leave the canyon.
On the fourth day, coming back down the Clear Creek Trail, we were rewarded with this magnificent view. That night we camped once again at the Bright Angel Campground, before making the big ascent to the canyon rim via the Bright Angel Trail on Day 5.
