North Rim of Grand Canyon

North Rim-15

Mt Hayden-Grand Canyon

The North Rim offers a serene and enthralling Grand Canyon experience, more remote and less developed than the South Rim. It was a 2 hour drive from our RV Park in Virgin, Utah to the North Rim and it’s 40 miles from Jacob Lake to the North Rim Visitor Center. After we arrived we hiked to Bright Angel Point, a one mile round trip hike with a grand view of the canyon. We ate a wonderful lunch at the Grand Canyon North Rim Lodge with breathtaking views of the canyon from our table. The Lodge was built in 1927-28 with the Main Lodge  building, 23 deluxe cabins, and 91 standard cabins. It was constructed of native Kaibab limestone and peeled Ponderosa pine logs, designed to harmonize with its rocky and forested setting. The Grand Canyon Lodge is the only complete surviving lodge and cabin complex in the national parks. I would highly recommend a visit to this beautiful, peaceful and remote setting in a magnificent park. On our way out we drove to Point Imperial, at 8,803 feet, it is the highest of the North Rim overlooks, with different panorama views of the Grand Canyon. Great views of Mount Hayden, and Boundary Ridge and Saddle Mountain to the north of Imperial Point. Click on thumbnail to view images

Epic Private Journeys Luxury Campsite  near the North Rim

We stopped in to see Kevin’s adventure company, Epic Private Journeys North America, luxury camping site on the edge of the North Rim nestled in the beautiful golden aspens. Then it was a long drive back to our RV, but well worth the drive to see the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, and one that we would definitely return to and spend more time hiking and exploring this remote scenery.. Click on thumbnail to view images
