North Rim of the Grand Canyon

On Monday morning, we headed out from the Overland Expo at Mormon Lake. We stopped at Flagstaff to buy groceries and gas before driving up to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Fred & Denise Cook were also going to the North Rim, so we all drove up together.

We stopped a couple of times along the road to take photos and eat a little cheese & salami.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get a campsite at the North Rim. So we stayed at a campground to the north for one night. The plus side is that we were able to dump our tanks, fill up with water and do some laundry.

So on Tiesday morning, we ate breakfast at the Lodge at the North Rim. The views were spectacular.

We walked along the rim and took photos. Or at least Fred & I took pictures.

We did a little shopping and then drove back into Kaibab National Forest to find a great place to camp. We stopped at a fire tower which we were actually go to the top with the young man working there.

Jon made it down first. This is a photo of Jon & Denise and our vehicles from about halfway down.

We found a great place to camp near the edge of the rim. Time to relax.

One thought on “North Rim of the Grand Canyon

    During Mothers’ Day past week, Jeanne was prompting me to remember my mother. My mother died when I was 17 so memories are a bit scarce. Your fire tower climb reminded me that she loved to climb fire towers. When we passed one while traveling, we had to stop to see if the tower were open to visitors. I climbed many towers with my mother.
