Canyon Muse

I'm just back from a backpacking trip to the Grand Canyon and now I am sinking into memories of the trip.  Hiking, camping, the trails, the colors of the canyon, colors coming out in the fibers I'm choosing to weave.

Sunset from Plateau Point

I was setting up my next weave and this is what happened.  It was unintentional, I was doing the leftover spools warp.  The influence of the canyon is there definitively.  Spending a week in that most mysterious, magical, grand canyon filled up my senses.

Sunrise on the rim

Morning on the South Kaibab trail

About 8 miles going down, down, down.

Sure footed Mules on the trails - love these hard-working animals.
