Fall Colors on the North Rim

Last weekend we took a quick day trip up to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon to catch a glimpse of the changing colors. It’s so amazing to actually experience a change in seasons. Β It was nice to wear hoodies and run around in the crisp clean air.

Rivers got a chance to earn his second Junior Ranger badge and he was so excited to take his pledge with the sweetest park ranger.

I think the highlight for Rivers was spending time with Ben. It’s hard for him to deal with his daddy being gone so much during the summer, and he was just ready to run around and play.

After a game (or ten) of tag in the parking lot, we hit a couple trails and viewpoints.

On our way back out to Fredonia, we stopped by a spot with some amazing Aspen trees, hanging on to their last glowing yellow leaves.

If you have never been to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, I highly recommend it. There are some amazing overlooks and trails, and the lodge itself has some spectacular views. If you visit during monsoon season you have a good chance of seeing a storm roll in over the edges of the canyon through the frame of the picture windows in the lodge.
