Anyway, where are you staying at the canyon? I just finished a trip through southern CO with a stop at the north rim, bloody gorgeous down there right now.
The plan was to camp.....the plan did not go as planned.
Lesson #1 from this trip (Im already back)......camping is great but you HAVE to get off the road early enough to find a site, setup and get comfy. If your going to ride hard all day......your going to ride yourself out of camping. I SHOULD have stopped at around 6ish.....instead I was consistently rolling till 8......and right into a motel room.
Near the GC I stayed at the Anasazi Inn....
