The season between December and February is not the most popular in Grand Canyon. The cold, occasional snowstorms and seasonal trail closures in the North Rim contribute to lower tourist numbers. On the other hand, this time of the year is quite a treat for photographers. Winter offers a unique chance to capture the layers of history powdered with snow. The lovers of terrific landscapes will appreciate and the absence of tourists also appears to be an advantage—you have all this breathtaking vastness for yourself.
Wintertime also offers some of the best sunrises and sunsets.
If you come during the Super Moon, you'll be blown away at the sight of such a majestically enchanting vista. Winter landscapes are unbeatable.
