Nicest part about the North Rim is that it's so much cooler than Page, AZ,or St. George, UT. We stayed around 70 degrees and sunny when all others were at 100 + degrees. That's because the North Rim is at 8,800 feet elevation.

I worked there this summer in the HR office - we had about 30 RV work-campers, plus about 200 'regular' folks who lived in employee dorms; housekeeping, gift shop, maintenance, front desk, food service. Busy place. Also drove the employee shuttle to Page to take float trips down the Colorado River starting at the Glen Canyon Dam endding at Lee's Ferry - dam tours, too. Houseboating on Lake Powell, visits to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. Was great to take the TC off to the Kaibab Forest for a quiet weekend.

Hope you had a great time at the North Rim.

Lodge closes Oct 16 - all guests out by noon. Road will close when there is 2 feet of snow - won't be plowed at that point. All employees "off the mountain" by Nov 1 except for 2 families who have to snowmobile 45 miles to Jacob Lake where their vehicles will be parked if they want off the mountain.

Not much to do at the North Rim if you aren't a hiker, though. But, nice place to visit. Don't try to get a t/c out to Marble Viewpoint, unless you are less than 12' in height and have great tires.

Al,
Really great pics, report, and travelog. That dirt road looked like a lot of washboard. Typical. I'm just getting ready to canvas my TC for the winter. You give me pause not to.
regards, as always, jefe
