I heard about the ABCD photo contest the day after the deadline from Froggi Donna over at 2TakingAFifth. Known as A Blogger’s Centerline Day, it was thought up and hosted by Gary France of USA Tour On a Harley Davidson. While I don’t ride a motorcycle, I thought the concept was nice. So, today while we were out, I took my own Centerline Photo. I won’t win a contest with this photo, but wanted to let Gary know I loved his idea!
Here I am, standing in the middle of the road on Arizona Hwy 67. This is the road that leads to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. I am about 11 miles from the rim here, at the first bend in the road after you enter the Grand Canyon National Park. That water you see behind me is snow melt. By mid-summer, all the water will be gone, and there will be a lush meadow there. That is where the buffalo (or beefalo) hang out most of the time in summer.
This road is closed to the public from December 1st every fall, until May 15th each year. That is because they get lots of snow here, and for most of the winter the only way in or out from the developed area is by snowmobile. FabGrandpa and I arrived here on April 25th to begin our work again. In a couple of weeks, when the gate is opened, I would be risking my life to stand here!
