Troo American Road Trip- The Grand Canyon North Rim (Day 13)

After visiting Bryce and Zion National Parks, I wondered if the Grand Canyon National Park would live up to it’s name. What was I thinking? The Grand Canyon North Rim is totally beyond compare in it’s majesty and grandeur.

But not one to give up, we decided to make the most of the rain by driving out to Cape Royal to check out the views. You can even see the Colorado River from here! With storms in the area, electricity was in the air so we didn’t linger.

Instead, we headed over to the Grand Canyon North Rim Campground and set up camp just as the rain stopped!

Then, we headed for dinner with the Grand Canyon Cookout Experience. The food was great, the show was fun- and my kids are still singing the song called “Bad Jokes” today!”
