North Rim View in Winter, Grand Canyon, Arizona

This image shows a view similar to the one in the previous posting, but this time the season is winter, and there are snow deposits on the foreground foliage and on the rocky structures in the far background. The north rim of the canyon is at a high elevation, and though it is in the middle of the western desert, it becomes cold enough for snow to fall and remain during the winter.

The description states:


During the winter months, the visitor to Grand Canyon is entrance by the contrasts between the snow-capped rim and the deep warm colors in the depths of the canyon.

–This card likely dates from the 1960s.
