“Thus the Grand Canyon is a land of song. Mountains of music swell in the rivers, hills of music billow in the creeks, and meadows of music murmur in the rills that ripple over the rocks. Altogether it is a symphony of multitudinous melodies. All this is the music of waters.”
— John Wesley Powell

Hello all :wave:
Other than an occasional comment or :+fav:
I will be away from deviantART for the foreseeable future.
I left a few images in my gallery,
however, all my Journals remain.
Please consider reading some of them.
They are much more interesting than the photos anyway.
My first camera, at age 7, was a fully manual Kodak folding model. My father, a Navy photographer, had acquired it at the end of WW2. It used 620 roll film — little different than 120 film — and employed a leather bellows to separate the lens from the film plane. The negative size was 2 ¼ inches by 3 ¼ inches, 8 images
This is an article-length journal. Please click on the links to view images of the areas mentioned. Over the next few weeks I will be adding several more. However, if anyone has their own images of places in the journal, by all means drop me a note and I will add a link to your photo.
While my current circumstances rule out any Grand Canyon hiking in the foreseeable future, my hope is that some day I may again hike in the Corridor.
