You'd think after all these years of RVing, I'd be done with the Grand Canyon. But I never tire of it!
This is the view from Pima Point, one of the stops on the free shuttle bus.
That's Granite Rapid down there. It looks pretty mild from here, but it isn't - it rates an 8 on the Park's 10-point scale of river difficulty.
Hermits Rest is the turn-around point for the bus.
The next day I took the bus again, this time to Mohave Point -
Where I tried to do a movie. It looked better in person, though.
Then on to Powell Point.
After the bus ride, I drove over to Yavapai Point. This is a great stop because of what you can see down on the river. Allow me to zoom in -
That's the 440-foot suspension bridge that takes hikers and mules across the Colorado River to Phantom Ranch and to the trail up to the North Rim.
And that is Phantom Ranch, where there are cabins and a campground for hikers.
I found a cute little baby elk in the campground. Mommy was there too. (I didn't stay there, I was just lost...)
Late in the day, just before sunset, we went to Mather Point.
The colors are much more brilliant then.
On the way home, ran into an elk jam. This poor little elk was just trying to cross the street. She finally did make it over to where her friends were.
