Day 32 Part 1: Glendale, UT to Jacob Lake, AZ

We left the campground at Glendale and headed north to see Cedar Breaks NM. Turns out that it is a miniature Bryce NP !!! Just as spectacular and colorful, just smaller and perhaps a little higher in elevation. We had crystal clear skies and nice cool temperatures. The road up to the park climbed about 5000 feet with lots of curves. We drove past a couple of significant lava flows - - what a stark terrain they make. After we left Cedar breaks, we back tracked to US 89 and headed south to Jacob Lake which is about 30 miles north of the entrance to the north rim of the Grand Canyon. We arrived, having made reservations at the only campground - - good thing we did because they filled up! After setting up camp, we headed to the North Rim - - Part 2.
