Century Sentry's Lonely Freedom
"The farther one gets into the wilderness, the greater is the attraction of its lonely freedom."
In a remote area of the Grand Canyon's North Rim, I camped at Point Sublime for 2 days waiting for the correct lighting to photograph this beautiful century plant. I've seen many like it, but to find the entire plant in healthy bloom at the same time is a bit of a rarity.
Point Sublime, on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, is one of the most breathtaking vistas anywhere in the Grand Canyon! And in fact is the only place on the edge of the North Rim that allows a view of the mighty Colorado River. The remoteness of this area makes it less frequented than other scenic views in the park. However with a 4WD vehicle, one can drive 20+ miles and literally park on the point and enjoy the splendor!
