You must go to see the Canyon at sunrise. It is awesome to see the sun first touch the tops of the rocks, and gradually travel down into the Canyon. It is almost as good at sunset as the shadows creep up the Canyon walls.

Since it is such an arid climate, you won't have too many days where it is overcast and drizzly all day long.

If you are there at noon especially in the summer, you will need to get something in the foreground to get some idea of the depth. Even then detail and closeup pictures are the items to concentrate on until the sun gets lower in the sky.

Photos can never really do justice to being there in person.
