Back from the North Rim...

...of the Grand Canyon!

We just returned from spending a week boondocking on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We had a great time and enjoyed wonderful weather. As always, pictures simply cannot capture the majesty, magnitude and beauty of the Canyon, but here are a few pictures from our week. Enjoy...we did!

1) Crossing Navajo Bridge
2) Our Campsite
3) Bright Angel Point
4) Walhalla
5) Angel's Window

Glenn, GREAT photos.
How much did you have to run your A/C up there? Any A/C at night?
How much did you run the generator to charge batteries?
Thanks
Jack

Great shots! The North Rim is so much different than the South Rim. Sitting at the Lodge on the North Rim at sunset is just a really special time.

Again, great shots and thanks for sharing.

Nice pictures. I would love to make it to the north rim one day. Made it to the south rim about 10 years ago and seriously thought "wow this is it?" Not to say I wasn't impressed but it was a pretty major let down. Not to mention I got a speeding ticket about 3 minutes outside the park. Bedrock City was pretty cool though for a dirty old tourist trap.
