This photo was taken at Phantom Ranch, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Each evening at Phantom Ranch there is a park ranger program on the canyon: about the wildlife of the canyon, the history of the canyon, etc. After the program is finished and it is completely dark, it is time to go scorpion “hunting” in the mule corral. The pillars of the corral absorb the heat of the sun beating down during the day, so the scorpions like to spend the evening on the pillars to keep warm at night. We managed to see a couple scorpions, just enough to experience seeing them, but not so many to be too freaked out about there being scorpions everywhere in the canyon that we are oblivious to.
