Snow day in Washington DC with friends & family

National Arboretum family photos

It was such a delight for this Arizona lady to experience a snow day while I was home recently visiting family in Virginia. Big beautiful snowflakes one day, gone by the afternoon the next. Such is the life of snow in Virginia. In addition to lounging around in a fleece robe and playing with my nephews and niece I also made time to see a few of my favorite Washington DC area families. These friends that go back many many years so it was really special for me to get photograph them and their kids right before the holidays.

Snow at the Grand Canyon

Snow at the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is a spectacular sight to behold. I have had a chance to visit the park on a number of occasions since living in Arizona. Each time I visit the canyon I have my breath taken away by its beauty and grandeur.  I have always wanted to see the canyon covered in snow. This week I got my wish. I tagged along with David while he was working on a travel story for the Arizona Republic. We drove up Monday and while David was shooting I went for a walk along the Rim Trail. The weather was cold but pleasant and there was some snow on the canyon but it was not exactly how I had envisioned the grand snow covered canyon. Monday night the Grand Canyon got several inches as we slept. Tuesday morning we woke to a picture perfect postcard better than I could have imagined. The powder white snow decorated the trees along the rim and wispy clouds hovered throughout the canyon. While David finished his travel assignment I walked around the south rim and took about a million pictures. Standing in one place the canyon would change before my eyes, as clouds would blow in and out, blue sky peaking through then abruptly disappearing.
