Did you know that the Elk (Cervus elaphus nelsoni) currently living in Grand Canyon National Park are not originally from here? In fact, they aren’t fully adapted to living in this dry climate. . From 1913-1928, 303 elk from Yellowstone National Park were introduced to the state of Arizona. Over time, they migrated north and have become a fixture in Grand Canyon National Park. However, the species still hasn’t fully adapted to the dry climate of Northern Arizona. . As the southwestern United States has been experiencing prolonged drought prior to recent seasonal monsoon rains, be mindful of the struggle that resident wildlife are enduring. With a short season to capitalize on fresh greenery and vegetation, these animals can become persistent and aggressive in their quest for fuel of any kind. Especially elk mothers with calves. . Providing food and water sources to elk and other wildlife is not only illegal in a national park, it is a bad idea anywhere: ‘helping’ animals in times of perceived need actually hurts them in times of plenty. They will learn to stop looking for natural resources and suffer greater consequences in the long run. Please remember to turn off or cap bottle-filling stations and water sources in the park! And always keep at least 100 feet (30m) from elk. . Image descriptions: 1) A cow elk in profile walking on a bikepath in a forest.

A Backcountry Permit is required to camp in a location other than in a developed campground on the North and South Rims. Bright Angel Campground (green area on the right in this photo) is at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, 9.9 miles from the South Rim and 14 miles from the North Rim. The campground is 1/2 mile north of the Colorado River, and sits along Bright Angel Creek. The campground is less than 1/2 mile from Phantom Ranch. The area is located by the river delta where Bright Angel Creek meets the Colorado River. . To reach this campground you can travel the South Kaibab Trail (and cross the black bridge) or the Bright Angel Trail (and cross the silver bridge) from the South Rim — or travel the North Kaibab Trail from the North Rim. Cottonwood trees shade Bright Angel Campground and the creek is a wonderful place to cool off.

Pima Point offers one of the best places on the canyon rim to see and sometimes hear the Colorado River. In the photo, on right, Granite Rapid, far below, can be heard on quiet days. Pima Point is a two-way bus stop; east-bound and west-bound for the Hermit Route shuttle (Red Route). .

A powerful shot of a thunderstorm over National Park. With monsoon season underway in the Desert Southwest, remember that lighting is common in Arizona. Viewpoints located near buildings, (or even on shuttle bus stops) like those in Grand Canyon Village and at Yavapai Geology Museum are safest, since they offer potential shelter from lightning. If you are outside and thunder roars, change your plans and go indoors! Every year people are struck by lightning at Grand Canyon. Photo by Travis Roe (www.sharetheexperience.org). [Image description, several large bolts of lightning flash from the foreground to background, above a canyon landscape of ridgelines and cliffs.]

During summer months, temperatures within Grand Canyon are extremely high. Plan your day so you are not hiking between the hours of 10 am and 5 pm. Take a break near shade and water to avoid the worst heat of day. Enjoy a predawn start and a late afternoon finish. * Hikers need to be aware that temperatures rise about five degrees for every 1,000 feet they descend on the trail. Phantom Ranch, nearly 4,600 feet below the South Rim, can reach more than 120 degrees F. during summer. [Image description: surrounded by desert scrub, several tall trees are growing in a narrow ravine that cuts through a broad plateau.

Great to see @YosemiteNPS highlighting the explosions in their park this — Explosions of color, that is! While fireworks are always prohibited in national parks and public lands, we love looking for other, more subtle ways that nature celebrates its own freedom of expression. Here are some of the showier wildlflowers Grand Canyon has to offer in place of fireworks. Image description: four flowers, clockwise from upper left: 1)Abronia nana, dwarf sand verbena has small purple flower clusters with small, round leaves. 2)Bright red flowers of Echinocereus coccineus, Scarlet hedgehog, or claret cup cactus. 3) Aquilegia caerulea, Colorado columbine, a large flower with five lance-shaped sepals, behind five larger, rounded petals, which extend backwards into a long, thin spur. 4) Linum lewisii - Blue Flax, with five overlapping blue petals with short, narrow, grey-green leaves growing at closely spaced intervals along the stem.]

Grand Canyon is considered one of the natural wonders of the world largely because of its natural features. The exposed geologic strata, layer upon layer, rise nearly a mile above the river, representing one of the most complete records of geologic history that can be seen anywhere in the world. -mq - Photo courtesy of W.
