It was a big day with scenery overload. Zion N.P. in the morning. Kanab at lunchtime and Grand Canyon in the afternoon. I realise this is not the best way to see these wonderful places. One should spend a week or more in each place but when you travel half way around the world and have a limited budget, one tries to see as much of the USA as possible in three weeks not counting the two weeks in California beforehand. Anyway we were having a ball. Everything was new and exciting.
It was raining when we arrived at our cabin on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and on the rim was right. Our cabin was about 50 metres from the edge see below.
The view from our cabin balcony. The rain cleared but unfortunately it remained overcast which didn't make the colours sparkle but it was still an amazing sight.
Are we happy? We can cross off another entry on our bucket list. This overlook near the lodge was breathtaking the drop plummeted for a mile. We are hanging on.

I was amazed that there wasn't a safety barrier on the side of the walkway. It did make it very
It is a shame there isn't a blue sky just a white one but it was still a magic 360* view.
"Living on the edge."
After we walked back up the track we needed a rest in our rocking chairs. We were 9,000ft above sea level and we found it hard to breathe climbing up, especially as I had developed bronchitis. Bill and I booked into the lodge restaurant for dinner.
