On Saturday morning, before we left the Walmart parking lot, I called at least ten RV parks hoping to find a spot reasonably close to the Northern Rim of the Grand Canyon. When I was close to giving up, the voice on the other end said, “Let me look, but I think I can help you.” I couldn’t believe my ears when she came back on the line and said the words I thought I would never hear again. “Yes, we have one spot open and I think it’s just what you need.” She was right. We enjoyed a pretty drive and arrived in Kanab, Utah about 4:00 that afternoon. Our next surprise, was that Kanab boasts of being in the heart of the parks. It’s close to so many things to see, we’ve decided to stay four nights here. Today, was the Grand Canyon.
I made Kip back up on a narrow, winding road so I could get a picture of this Aspen tree. I think the white trunk with the fall leaves made for a pretty contrast with the surrounding trees and the blue sky.
Below are the pictures I took with Kip in them.
Here are the ONLY pictures he took of me.
When we got back to the RV park, Kip handed me his cell phone and said to look at the pictures he took. He thought I might like to use some of them. They were pretty good until I got to these two. I said, “These are terrible.. and they’re in front of a dumpster!” He’s still laughing..says he doesn’t remember taking them. This is the last time I’ll wear twinsie sweatshirts with him!
Sammie watching for cars while I took a picture…Sammie and Patti all tuckered out. No, the cat didn’t go.
It really was a fun day. We went to the Southern Rim of the Grand Canyon last year and it was spectacular. The Northern side is less commercialized, and for all you hikers, there are tons of hiking trails to explore.
Tomorrow we’re going to Bryce Canyon and Zion State Park. I will tell you all about the personality of the town of Kanab in another post.
Have a great day!
