Grand Canyon - North Rim

Gary and I spent 2 days exploring the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We camped out in the boonies about 34 miles north of the park. This park does not have any shuttle service. You have to drive at least 15 miles to see Cape Royal and Angel's Window. Gary says that he enjoyed the North Rim of the canyon more than the south. There was a fire over by Cape Royal which started in July. Fire was caused by lightening. In some of the pictures, you can see the smoke from the fire.

We were greeted by the buffalo about a mile into the park. A couple were in the road and were in no hurry to get out of the way.

This is Angel's Window. You can see the Colorado River through the window. We walked out to the overlook on top of the window. What a view.
