Description

Last year, Fall in Havasupai was a great trip. This remote part of the Grand Canyon can only be accessed by hiking, horses or helicopter (I've done all 3) On this trip, we road the horses down and that in itself was an adventure. The canyon temps were incredibly cold and I spent my evenings in a tent just barely staying warm. One evening I could hear something walking around my tent and while I was a bit disturbed by it, it was WAY too cold to investigate. Turned out to be a curious horse. While hiking to Navajo Falls, I'd seen this scene on the way back and wanted to capture it. I especially love my Fall images to show a bit past peak when all the leaves have created a confetti-like ground. That's what I loved so much about this scene, the Fall colors literally surround the landscape. These backpackers politely asked if they needed to stay out of the scene and I asked them to continue. I took shots without them as well but they just complimented the scene no nicely. Especially the complimentary color of the blue hiker drenched in a sea of autumn's golden hues.
