Marble Canyon Moonrise

Marble Canyon Moonrise

Coconino Sandstone cliffs on the North Rim glow over the Colorado River at mile 31.5 as it cuts through Marble Canyon beneath a full and rising moon. Marble Canyon is the introduction to Grand Canyon when approached by river from Lee’s Ferry. By this time the magic and solitude of the river are at work as one awakens to the beauty and pleasure of adventure to come. Painted on the river.
