Celebrating a ‘Grand’ milestone. Snow on the temple
The North Rim of the Grand Canyon (which today celebrates 100 years since its official designation as a US national park) is one of the only portions of the park that gets snow every winter. It’s also the least visited part of the park, despite incredible views such as this cloud-veiled peek of Isis Temple. Numerous geologic formations in the North Rim have names referencing mythologies and faiths from around the world. The ‘temple’ at Isis Temple is an erosion-resistant stone at the top of the mound. If you want to see the Temple of Isis, you’ll need to visit Pompeii.
