the Grand Canyon (North Rim)

by | May 20, 2007 | Travel

After 90 miles of driving through hills, a plateau, and a pine forest, we finally reached the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Our first stop was Bright Angel Point (near the visitor’s center) where we had our first clear view of the canyon.

We tackled part of the North Kaibab Trail next and we were rewarded with this stunning view at the Coconino Overlook. The 1.5 mile round-trip hike included a 1,000 foot drop in elevation.

All the overlooks offered different and amazing views of the canyon. The Cape Royal overlook at the end of a 20 mile scenic drive was our final stop for the day.
