Saturday last I arrived at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, I start work soon. We open to the public on May 15th

The last few days I have been going out for sunrise on the inner canyon.

Looking straight across the canyon at the south rim, the Bright Angel trail is visible just left of the brightest part of the upper wall. You can see the upper 2 miles of switchbacks of the trail.

Gary, the north rim is my favorite place on planet earth.  Nothing quite like sunset sitting on the veranda with a glass of wine.  And especially after completing an R2R hike! 

Enjoy your summer in God's country.
