September 17, 2015 – Grand Canyon North Rim

It was a Grand day.  We had not planned to go to the Grand Canyon since we had been to the south rim a few years ago.  Son Christopher had never been and wanted to see it, so we went today and I am so glad we did.  The north rim is beautiful even before looking into the canyon itself.  The drive there was also beautiful.

There really isn’t much to add to the pictures, except that it is bigger than it looks in these pictures folks. 

As soon as we were parked, Christopher and Andy ate the road food we had packed.

This bridge was breathtaking.

I loved this spot along the trail. It was cold up there (8,000 some feet). I was glad Christopher had a space down jacket in his truck. I have a serious case of hat hair.

b Andy Dinata on Bench

This is the wedding spot. The bride and groom stand at the edge of the cliff.  If they get cold feet, they can just jump off.
