We recently visited the Grand Canyon with our daughter and son-in-law and while the younger folks went for a hike down one of the trails, hubby and I stayed "topside" to take photos. I heard some people talking about the juniper trees near the rim and one of them said this one was 600 years old. Of course, I HAD to go take a further look. I've been fascinated by junipers since they also grow in our local mountains and this spring were covered with blue berries. This one was indeed tall, old, and gnarly. And, who can't ignore the beauty of the Grand Canyon? These photos were taken on the south rim. Sunday Stills Challenge for June 27, 2010.
