The Mather Point overlook is the â€˜mainâ€™ overlook on the South Rim and as a result it is PACKED each day for sunrise. I read that prior to the trip so I was prepared to battle the crowd and even came across a few nice folks Iâ€™d met the night before at sunset. We arrived about an hour before the â€˜showâ€™ and were one of the first few people there. As I snapped away I heard crowds gathering but was â€˜in the zoneâ€™ so to say so never really turned around to see what was going on behind me. After battling for an hour and shooting 200 â€“ 300 pictures I turned around to see if Gretchen was ready to leave. When we first got there she sat right behind me so that is where I expected to find her. She wasnâ€™t there â€“ I lost my wife in the grand canyon among a hoard of mostly Asian tourists who it seems had all arrived in large caravan buses. I looked far and wide but all despite the fact she is tall and blonde the crowds made this task more difficult than playing Whereâ€™s Waldo. Eventually, after I had salmoned my way through the crowd I found her taking some iPhone pictures far away from the crowds. Apparently, the tourists had little sense of the â€˜personal spaceâ€™ we are accustomed to but I was too zoned out to notice. Iâ€™m just glad I didnâ€™t have to explain to my in-laws how I lost their daughter in the middle of the Grand Canyon.
