Greg at the North Rim

Greg spent 12 days with friends camping out with friends.  His friend, Kurt, knows many of the back roads on the north side of the canyon.  He shares some of the photographs taken during that trip.

 Greg wrote that they were able to mountain bike along the rim.  That would be fun!

 Oh Greg!  You have skunked me with this one.  I still have not managed to get a good photograph of that window!

 They climbed up two different manned fire towers and were able to spend time with the folks that were working in them.  That is a lot of steps and Greg did two.

 I could not do that.  Not because I am out of shape (I am) but i could not handle the looking down bit.

 The group hiked down to Big Springs from one of the fire tower locations.  He wrote that the cabins there used to be for Forest Service employees only.  But, now half of them are available for just $65 per night.

 Greg says they were camping.  Haha!  Camping in style, I think.

 Even with a fifth wheel, having one of these in the evening makes it camping.

A very special thanks to Greg for sharing his vacation.  You rock, my friend!
