I had been watching the high water flow down the LCR at Winslow for a couple of days and was itching to get out to Grand Falls to get some shots. So I loaded up my bike and went for a ride. It was a beautiful day and I was looking forward to the roaring falls. After a great ride I arrived to be hugely disappointed! The water had not made it to the falls yet. Bummer! (This was just 3 days prior to the day that azpride got those fantastic shots of the falls on the 1st of March) So I took a few shots of the mostly dry falls and then talked to an elderly couple that was there in their motor home. They were planning on heading home that night but when I told them that the water should be there within a day they decided to stay another night.
I wasn't totally disappointed however! The sunset was great and the view of the San Francisco Peaks at sunset from the falls was an angle I had not seen before. So I took the time to shoot a few shots of the peaks as the sun settled behind them. It was a great day all in all.
