As we drove away from Grand Canyon National Park last summer, we knew we’d be returning five months later. Good byes are always easier when you know you’ll be returning. And July would soon be upon us and we were headed north to Churchill Manitoba with its polar bears, beluga whales, red fox, and a whole new subarctic world.
Returning was like coming home – we are back among friends – being welcomed with open arms, lots of hugs, and smiles. Even the wildlife seemed to know we were back.
It has turned to winter and this morning we were greeted with snow on the ground. Like little kids we bundled up to head to the South Rim to check out the views. The ravens were playing, the snow was flying up out of the canyon, fog rimmed the northern edge…..
It is good be to back….
