Does Anyone Know Where This Is?

Fri Jun 29, 2007 1:13 pm

On a previous trip report I passed over this canyon in NW Arizona flying UA SAN-DEN earlier his month

My suspicions tell me it's the Grand Canyon but I'm not quite sure

Can anyone confirm these are of the Grand Canyon or is it something else?

Thanks

Having flown over the Grand Canyon myself (and having it pointed out by the captain for confirmation), I don't think that is it...at least not the "best" parts, anyway. I can't see a river in either pic, which should be clearly visible from the air if it were the Grand Canyon.

I'm thinking it's this area of Arizona, east of the Grand Canyon.

Hmm quite possible.

I know that before I took those 2 pics I flew by Lake Havasu City before I crossed the Arizona state line and over the Colorado river as you can see in this picture.

Is it Bryce Canyon ? I flew over that part of the world (a very long time ago) en route between SFO and DFW, and the captain pointed out Bryce Canyon.
