Day 32 Part 2: North Rim of the Grand Canyon

We drove to the North Rim and went first to Roosevelt Overlook, which faces east about half way out to Cape Royal. It was getting late and we wanted to get to the visitors center before they closed, so we turned around, went to Point Imperial, which also looks to the east. Then went to to the visitors center where Gena and Charlie got patches and stamped. Bob took the path out to Bright Angel Point - - his knees were vibrating big time! Narrow trail, narrow bridges with no guard rails, windy,and BEAUTIFUL, even in the late afternoon sun. Saw lots of deer on the way back to Jacob Lake.

Great Trip.
We spent a couple of weeks at the Grand Canyon in 1994. We were going to work there for the summer, but they would not give us the same days off, so we went back to Yellowstone, but the GC is an awesome place. Your trip sounds wonderful.

North Rim
I found the drive into the North Rim, particularly the last 50 miles, to be fascinating. The many and varied shades of green in the beautiful forests still amaze me as I recall them from about 15 years ago.
