Day 2

Day 2
We were up early on Friday morning and set out for Crazy Jug Point via Ryan Road and some side nf roads…….it was pretty damn chilly on Ryan Road but it had warmed up nicely by the time we reached Crazy Jug Point which was our first exposure the Grand Canyon on this trip…..

Some misc. pics at Crazy Jug point:



















We left Crazy Jug and motored along on some really nice/fun nf roads/Ryan Rd. on our way down to Pt. Sublime:

Lot’s of color in the trees……the photos never due justice to the “big picture” scenery/colors……



We pulled over at a small turnout/viewpoint on our way to Pt. Sublime…



Roger showing a bit of “the Captain” in him…



Chris taking it all in (again)



Self timer attempt on Roger’s camera:



Roger’s 640 blocking my view



Pt. Sublime was very impressive:















Chris soaking up the view

Roger's self portrait with Canyon in background



Ya really need to watch your step on the edge



As we were standing at Pt. Sublime a rider pulled up on a DR350.......his name was Mike and he was camped over on the North Rim......Mike was out on a month long "all about me" trip with his truck/trailer to hold his bike and no family.......a solo journey spent driving his truck to different destinations, unloading, and riding around the countryside on his bike......we caught him ~3 weeks into his trip.......he'd ridden all over Utah by the time we met up with him at the Grand Canyon.......nice guy/good attitude......Cheers Mike!
Once we left Pt. Sublime we blazed across some more FUN fire roads and one expansive meadow before hitting Hwy 67 which took us down to the North Rim Lodge









We parked at the Lodge and got a bite to eat……

View from inside the Lodge:



We were too lazy to walk down to the view point



Roger Chillaxing at North Rim Lodge:



We stopped by the deli for a couple of slices of pizza…….too many people/buses……that’s NOT the experience we were seeking……let's get out of here!
