The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is about 8000 ft, so the drive there is largely high elevation conifers and alphine meadows, with some aspen trees sprinkled around. The aspens seemed to be more prevalent within the park, and they had started turning color. Driving through them is kind of magical, because the leaves are flat and thin, so if the sunlight is behind them it shines through, giving them the glowing appearance you see here (even the ones that are still green).
