|GRAND CANYON NORTH RIM|

North Grand Canyon - The North Rim is about 1,000 ft higher in elevation
than the south side
and may not be accessible during winter months - ie (Dec 1st - May 14th), AND early
morning temperatures may be down in the latter 30's and 40's in November.
We'll let you in on a little secret. 90% of tourist go to the south side of the Grand Canyon, then leave within a couple hours. 90% of the beauty is found here - North Rim!
Edging our way to the canyon... LET'S ROLL!
It's a journey we've made many times and love the ride through Southern Utah, it's a beauty and so are the motorcycle roads.
Still working our way down into the Grand Canyon and loving the highways!
This open plateau around the outside of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is spectacular in the springtime. All these open fields flourish with small flowers. As can be seen in the photos, you'll notice the change in seasons bring us all the wild colors set back into the forest of the surrounding areas. There's about a 30 day window for the change of season's, from around mid September to mid October.
For day 2 we've done a lot of traveling and starting to see the long shadows.
As things go, the camp grounds were full and were having a hard time trying to find a decent place to stay. We definitely couldn't afford a hotel down here that run a couple hundred a night and we have our gear to camp. We started looking around some pretty decent dirt roads for a place to stay the night.
Farewell to Day 2
Right in the middle of nowhere we found this camp area, which we thoroughly enjoyed. I must admit, it got pretty scary at night with no protection and animals howling but still we had a great time.
Well, we made it through the night. Here's my little princess up and ready to get started on day 3, right after we round down some coffee somewhere.
We were a mile or so down this dirt area. We're now headed to the North Rim. Look at the beautiful Aspen's. Nothing like waking up to this.
Alas... Were Here!
As you can imagine, we were able to get some great photos in grrrrreat weather before we started home. Always another journey and road to explore for Vegas Valley Motorcycle Tours Just 4 the Ride!
