A Sunday Ride for a Grand Canyon Sunset

So I was looking at this photo taken last year when Viola-tor and I did the Grand Canyon.

When the decision was made that I needed to see the GC again. Sunset sounds like a plan.

I leave town pretty early on Sunday, just as the balloons are setting off.

It's gonna be over 100 degrees today in the desert.

I head north on the 89A to find some lean angle.

I spend time playing around with video for the first time and I may share some of it later.
I stop to stretch the legs in Jerome. This place attracts tourists, artists, and the bikers line up in front of the saloons.
I found a few interesting things in Jerome.

Liberty Theater



Highway 89A runs down the mountain and across the Verde Valley towards the red rocks of Sedona.

My 2002 Aprilia RST1000 Futura

Porsche 2

Highway 89A in Oak Creek Canyon


I forgot how much of the river is visible at Desert View.

I get to Desert View about 2.5 hours before sunset. It was warm so I change into shorts and t-shirt to wait.
It looked like I may get wet, but all of the showers moved away.

Wait for it!
