Canyon Views from Desert View and Lipan!!
The best thing about this time of year in the Grand Canyon is the monsoon weather. The sky has been full of gorgeous cotton candy clouds and amazing sunsets that my camera just can't do justice to. My favorite place to shop is in Cameron at the Trading Post. Not really expecting to purchase anything, Patty and I moseyed over to take a look. Gee ... I'm such a sucker for Navajo rugs ... and bartering!! Tanya (who sold me the last Two Hills rug I purchased a year ago) was again there to offer her advice and give us some history on the weavers. Okay okay ... I bought another rug. I'll get a picture to show you shortly. On the return trip, we stopped at my favorite place to shoot, Desert View. It is the eastern end of the canyon where a huge tower was built in the early 1900's called ... you guessed it ... Desert View. A gift store takes up the bottom floor with a narrow stairway that climbs three stories. You have to check out this building. A Navajo native painted all the interiors with beautiful designs!!
