Hamlin Garland thus describes a storm in the Canyon. "The whole vast chasm was roofed with masses of grey clouds ranked closely and hurrying swiftly, all the distracting lines of the Canyon were lost and the haphazard coloring was made harmonious by deep blue curtains of mist. Here was a new phase of the Canyon. I began to understand it had a thousand differing words. It is like a mountain range, a cloud today, a wall of marble tomorrow. When the light falls into it it is harsh, but the storm will transform it into a splendor no mountain range can surpass. Peaks will shift and glow, walls darken, crags take fire, and gray green mesas take on the gleam of opalescent lakes of mountain water."
