Photographer's Note

The North Rim of the Grand Canyon, where one can stroll out on to the top of Angel's Window Arch.
"Some say the Cape Royal Trail has the best views from any of the Grand Canyon vistas... starting out on a paved tree-lined interpretive signed pathway. Along the way are pinon trees, cliff roses, Utah Juniper and other flora.
There are a couple spots on the northside of the pathway, to go off path and look out across the Rim and toward Angel's Window, a square opening in the Kaibab limestone. In some spots, one can see the Colorado River through the 'window'. The natural arch was caused by water seeping through the cracks, then across planes between rock beds, eventually eroding the rock from underneath.
One may opt to go north to the top of Angel's Window or continue to the tip of Cape Royal, the southernmost viewpoint on the North Rim. From the 'tip' is a panoramic 360 degree view, and the first massive thing is flat-topped Wotan's Throne, to the left is Vishnu Temple and Freya Castle. And across to the South Rim, is a glimpse of Desert View's Watchtower."

PS: The dense 'haze' in the background is from coal burning electric plants and autos/trucks exhaust. To the east in nearby Page is a huge coal burning plant which is a primary culprit.
