    Reported by:

    Day after an all-day snow-fall. This morning the weather was better already, but changing; clouds coming and going, sometimes snowing, or with a sun peeking out. The Grand Canyon is always awe-inspiring, but with all these light and shadows, with the misty clouds, and with snow-covering on the top of cliffs looking like powered sugar on some cakes, it was just beyond my imagination.
