Kanab, UT H 98 L 62 North Rim Grand Canyon H 83 L 33
Today I took us up to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The truck ran beautifully. The weather was perfect. I took a zillion pictures but not a one of them show how pretty the canyon truly is.
I think some jet were having a pretty good time up in the sky.
The Rangers are preparing for possible fires again this year with the extremely dry conditions in Arizona.
Jim did pretty good. He had some problem breathing at this elevation but he had his inhaler and we took it really slow. We walked out to a couple of vantage points but that was about all he could handle this time. We are also very grateful that we have the American the Beautiful Pass which lets old folks into the National Parks for free. Saved us $25 in this one visit.
This was the path we walked down and then had to climb back up. Had to rest when we got up to the top.
Some really interesting looking trees along the path. In order to see them though you had to quit looking at the canyon and that was hard to do.
This was the only wildlife I saw. Hope you can see him.
We had lunch at the Lodge restaurant and were able to get seats right at the windows so we could enjoy our meal looking out over the canyon. One of the rangers told us that the South Rim of the Canyon gets around 5 million visitors a year but the North Rim only gets 500,000.
Every day we can spend together is a special day and this day trip was certainly a fun way to enjoy it.
And of course, once last cloud picture.
