01 - Grand Canyon - North Rim

Again, not a long ride today, but we should see some great sites.

The North Rim of the Grand Canyon was todayâ��s trek. Itâ��s only eighty miles south of Kanab, Utah to the most south end of the road at the Park.  We got there and began our day of strolling, walking, hiking, or whatever you wish to call it.  Whichever, I forgot to put on my sunblock. Little did I realize that I would be out of the car most of the day and hiking out to a point at which I felt pretty uncomfortable, like two feet from the edge of a thousand foot drop.  Maybe more. My wife usually has more of a fear of heights than I, but time after time I found myself asking her to come away from the edge.  Many places had railings, but a few didn't and so I was  uncomfortable.

Description of Grand Canyon:  The size is much bigger than anyone imagines.

The colors are wonderful. The overall effect on human beings � �It brings tears to most people eyes.� And I agree.

I took 113 good shots today., both of the Canyon and the wonderful flowers and fauna.

Dinner tonight was at a nice little Mexican Restaurant in Kanab, called Escobarâ��s. 

  

Also, we missed getting a speeding ticket both going and coming through a small town named Fredonia, AZ.  We were just moseying on our way south and saw the officer out past town waiting for a speeder, before the speed limit changes back.  And he was still there when we returned early that evening.  I guess the town makes a small fortune each year on tourists that way.  What a shame.

  

  

 

 Note: October 2010 - I have begun to add a few color adjusted photos to this blog. The originals weren't bad, but I feel the improved versions make the pictures much more vibrant and beautiful.
