Fall Vacation 2009, Day 4

Our fourth day found us traveling 90 miles south through the Arizona Strip (that part of Northern Arizona that is cut-off from the rest of the state by the Grand Canyon), to enjoy the fabulous sights of the North Rim.

The wind storm the day before made it rather hazy, and littered the road with trees. So we had to hang out around the lodge for a couple of hours while they cleared the roads before we could get to the more spectacular points. But it was well worth the wait!

At over 8,000 feet in elevation, the Grand Canyon has a completely different character here than on the South Rim. One could not help but sing the praises of the Creator as we observed such amazing beauty!

To be continued...
