Marble Canyon of the Colorado River, AZ USA Jan 09, 2015
We go way North of Flag like we are going to the North Grand Canyon. We cross the Colorado River bridge (new bridge now) and keep going across the desert of BLM land. Before we get to the Kaibab we turn left (south) and go over 10 miles on an improved road. We pass a big ranch and the road turns into unimproved dirt. We go another 10 miles as we enter the N. Kaibab Nat. Forest with no trees.

We finally get to the overlook on Marble Canyon over 20 years ago with Molly and wife #1. The views and isolation are great. We stay for a while to absorb the views and the sound of the wind.

Returning we cut off and take a poor dirt trail up the Kaibab. (Fortunately I bring my maps!) We zig-zag up and up and finally reach the big trees on top of the Kaibab where they call this "the East Rim". We set our free camp and make dinner.
