Bright Angel Canyon
Bright Angel Canyon is one of the most prominant cross-canyon features of the Grand Canyon. Here, it is visible cutting into the North Rim and across the canyon below. It follows a fault which cuts across the canyon and is the site of one of the most popular trails from the South Rim where it cuts into the South Rim. Just left of Bright Angel Canyon on the North Rim is the main North Rim National Park visitors center at Bright Angel Point. At bottom left is the end of the trail out to the Colorado overlook. This view is from along the rim trail as we approached Yavapai point coming from the South Rim visitors center. This image was at 25mm focal length with an exposure of 1/200 seconds at f/8, ISO 100 with a polarizing filter.
