After leaving our friends in Winslow we headed North to visit the North Rim, Grand Canyon for three days. Along the way we noticed the improvements to Hwy. 89 and the traffic circle installed in the Cameron area. We did not stop at the Cameron Trading Post as we wanted to enjoy lunch at Cliff Dwellers, which is located West of Lee’s Ferry. We have always enjoyed meals there, and they had introduced us to sweet potato fries, which they do most deliciously!
The drive South on SR 67 from Jacob Lake is beautiful and we enjoyed it once again. There are several long meadows along the way which are framed by ponderosa pine and aspen. The aspen had not yet started to change, but I could visualize the drive in late September/early October.
|TENACIOUS TREE, A FAVORITE OF MINE AT BRIGHT ANGEL POINT|
The first afternoon was spent around the Lodge and walking out to Bright Angel Point. Met up with Rangers Gaelyn and Jeremy.There was no sunset to speak of so we enjoyed touching bases with a few of our other friends, Nate, Mark, Ed, and Sharon, before heading back to the Kaibab Lodge where we were staying, for dinner. Their menu does not really change but occasionally they have a special. We enjoyed their BBQ’d ribs.
