The large crowd of people assembled at Yavapai Point to witness this sunset actually broke into applause when the sun final went out of sight. I had goosebumps. We were all amazed when the sun dipped below the clouds and produced this scene. It had rained most of the day on and off at the south rim of the Grand Canyon. For me, it had been years and years since I'd been to this popular scenic destination. I always had avoided the south rim and the crowds, but that's just me. Nevertheless, that's what made this so special. The shared experience of seeing such a beautiful sight with so many adoring fans was a perfect way to end the day in this most iconic of America's national parks.
A nice sunset before the big event. The supermoon eclipse on September 27, 2015.
