South Rim Redux

Last summer we spent the month of July in N. Arizona traveling in our motorhome Turtle. We will be going back for the month of June this year. This blog was posted last year during our visit to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. We are republishing it here as a preview of the kind of country we will be posting from in June.

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is always busy, but we’ve discovered ways to make your visit more fun:

1. Park you vehicle and get around by bicycle or free shuttle bus. 2. Avoid the west end. Period. Yuck. 3. If stuck in the west end, just walk away from the crowds; the best views are elsewhere. 4. Camp at Desert View on the east rim. 5. Stay several days. 5. Get up for sunrise, the tourists sleep in, and when it’s still cool enough to hike below the rim.GrandCanyon2

Take the time to let it soak in. Write in your journal, take a nap in the forest, follow a beetle’s wanderings. Grand Canyon is truly one of the wonders of the world, and we’ve seen a bit of the world.
