After leaving St. George, we drove about 3 hours to our next stop. We had an absolutely amazing time at the Grand Canyon, North Rim. Because we broke down and lost one night, we maximized our time at the canyon. Once we got the campground, we quickly unloaded the bikes and rode down the the Grand Canyon Lodge and Rim. We walked along a pretty precarious trail out to the view point. The kids were awe struck by the size, as was I. We stopped at the visitor center and picked up the Jr. Ranger booklets for the kids and rode back to the RV. Speaking of the RV...
I think we incurred some other damages to the RV from our tow in St. George. I seem to be without propane gas and my fridge went out. No more food that is good to eat in the fridge! The greatest loss was the cookie dough... have to restock on that in Denver.
We spent our one night at the canyon listening to a great ranger program. The kids all filled out their booklets and became "Jr. Rangers," taking a pledge and all.
In the morning, I drove them (still in their beds) down to the Rim 545am. I thought we should all watch the sunrise. They were very happy to do it, and it took our breath away.
After breakfast we drove to another rim view, Cape Royal, for one last visit. It was even more amazing than what we had seen earlier.
We are now in Zion and have decided to stay 2 nights instead of one. The pace of just 'one night stands' is a bit much for us all. We'll be in Moab tomorrow and will stay 3 nights. We've decided to change course and skip southern Col. for now. From Moab we'll hit Vail and then into Denver.
Kids will post this afternoon. They are doing great, shopping in the gift shop. We haven't had internet or cell coverage since the canyon, so we'll update when we can.
