In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Yellow.”
I was surprised by the winter yellow/gold of cottonwood trees in the bottom of the Grand Canyon. In this desert environment, the cottonwood grows close to creeks and streams, especially along Bright Angel Creek as shown here. Snow covered Indian Gardens Campground the next night, just a few thousand feet higher in elevation.
Very nice photos, Jim. Did you strap on microspikes on the snowy portions of the trail?
I highly recommend icetrekkers. They don’t have spikes, but grip well on rock, ice, or snow. http://www.rei.com/product/806475/kako-icetrekkers-diamond-grip-traction-system
