I think the climate in the Grand Canyon depends on how far down you are.

Incidentally, you led me to look up the Köppen climate type here in Española.  One site said "Marine west coast" (well, it's less than 1,000 miles off) and one said "Humid continental".  Hahahaha right, 10-11 inches of precipitation per year.  Wikipedia says we're on the border between cool desert and cool semi-arid, which sounds right.
