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









Porsche!









1898




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!
