Grand Canyon North Rim

Saturday: (05/18) Lou made sausage and cheese omelets for breakfast. We were then off early toward the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

We stopped at a Farmers Market in Kanab. They had a very good musical group playing, called the Tumbleweedz. After a little rest, a look around , and a few tunes we were back on the road.

We visited all the scenic lookouts on the North Rim and checked out the lodge. Lunch was ham and cheese sandwiches at the Bright Angel Point overlook.

The North side is not as devloped as the South. Far fewer trails and lookouts. The view from wat there is is pretty good.

The weather wasn't great. We had some rain and wind.

We stopped on the way home in Kanab again at the Three Little Pigs restaurant. Dawn found it online when searching for a gluten free restaurant. Lou and I enjoyed tortilla soup and I had a half tuna sandwich. Dawn had a ruben sandwich. For desert they shared a bread pudding a-la-mode and I had a rhubarb, strawberry and other mixed fruit pie a-la-mode. Everything was excellent. We were back home in Panguitch about 10pm. When we crossed in to Arizona we stopped and bought a PowerBall ticket. Another interesting thing was meeting the same person at the farmers market, as our waitress for dinner and at the market after dinner. Kanab is a small town.
