Arizona Highways

January 2024

The cover of the January 2024 issue of Arizona Highways Magazine features my photograph Magic at Mohave of a snowy winter scene at the Grand Canyon. I made this photograph from Mohave Point on the park's South Rim as a winter storm was clearing in the distance. Sunlight had just begun to break through a gap in the clouds, and snow falling from the storm was illuminated, spreading a soft glow throughout the canyon. The Colorado River can be seen far below, reflecting the warm light from the storm above.

I was the only person at Mohave Point when I captured this moment. The air was cold, and the wind had been fiercely blowing throughout the afternoon, but it had slowly subsided as sunset approached. It was so quiet that I could hear the faint roar of Hermit Rapid at river mile 95, over 3 miles away.
