Figuring we might as well do a lot of driving instead of hiking, we headed for the East entrance to the Canyon, a little over 25 miles away from the RV Park. It took us about 40 minutes to go all the way out, and then about 4 1/2 hours to make our way back. There were 7 named viewpoints along the way back, and a couple pullouts, so it was a lot of starting and stopping.
We began at what is called Desert View Point, I think because there is a desert on the plateau behind the far side of the canyon.
Next was Navajo Point...they didn't have any explanation as to why it was called that, so we can only speculate.
Riding from one point to another we saw this sign. In all our travels, we have never seen a sign for Mountain Lion crossings!!!!
The Grandview lookout point was probably the most spectacular. This quote just about sums up the whole experience!
Sunset at Rim View Trail
I loaded some videos today (as you can tell), but I may put them on the back burner in the near future. Blogspot.com, the host for this blog, has done something that allows me to load pictures much quicker than before, so I thought I would try to load some videos and see if they was quicker also...not! So I may just stick with pics...we'll see.
Anyway, another great day at the Grand Canyon. Can't wait to get out there again tomorrow!
