It is much farther traveling from Tucson to the north rim of the Grand Canyon which is in the Kaibab National Forest than if we went to the south rim. You will be rewarded by a higher elevation, cooler temperatures, 1/10 is many people, wild turkeys, deer, and even Buffalo! It takes some effort to ever see the Colorado River as it is farther away than the south rim. We enjoyed it better than even Zion National Park or Bryce Canyon!

To many folks, AZ67 is just the road to the North Rim. It's much more if you SLOW DOWN and watch and listen! If you're not camping, stop at the visitor center by the Jacob Lake Inn and grab a pamphlet, and stop at the several pullouts along the highway. Read the signs and explore a forest access road or two. Suck down that amazing Ponderosa pine air and watch for Kaibab squirrels, bison, deer, and tons of birds. We felt a bit sad for all the cars full of people who were just in a hurry to BE somewhere instead of enjoying the journey.

This area is amazing. Beautiful forests, beautiful drive in through desert and red rock country. Lots of areas to choose from for sightseeing, hiking, etc. the Grand Canyon is amazing, of course, and the old lodge just beautiful. The sad part was the smoke. some of it was from prescribed burns, which is tolerable, but some of it was from the coal fired power plants in the four corners area. So sad that these plants are allowed to still exist!

Except for the first 1,000 acres (2006 fire) this forest is beautiful with rolling meadows for miles! In 2 days I saw a herd of buffalo, deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, and eagles.

The fires that have happened here have damaged/destroyed so much, it was heart breaking. I know some of it will come back, I just hate to see this.

We found a few great viewpoints for the Grand Canyon which we had to use due to the park being closed. The drives to them were on gravel but level roads. There would usually be a short walk to some such as Crazy Jugs.

We made a quick trip through the Kaibab National Forest on the way to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We'd planned to make a couple of side trips to photograph Kaibab squirrels and other critters, but the snow put a damper on those plans! I reckon we'll just have to come back!

But the snow did enable us to stop along the meadows for some play time in deep, pristine, powder. Too bad we didn't have sleds or skis!

It's always great to be up here in October when the Aspen leaves have turned yellow and goes right to the north rim of thousands Canyon. I love to go here any time of year. We saw a lot of deer.

You feel alone with the animals, buffalo, deer, and elk as you wander through the many side trails there are to choose from or just linger along the road as you travel into the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Have good headlights if traveling by dark. This really is wilderness and the dark is very dark.

We drove down Highway 64 until just past Grandview Point, then turned south on Coconino Road (Fire Rd 310) and entered Kaibab National Forest where dispersed camping is allowed. We enjoyed the sunset on a partial view of the canyon in complete solitude.
