We planned this trip to take place the first part of October so we could still get there in time for the color change of the leaves.
The timing was perfect,
After ride on some amazing singletrack through the full colors the trail would then open up to the miles of Grand views of color.
This view is from the north rim looking toward the south rim. The south rim is about 20 miles away and about 1000 feet below the north rim.
Dave Sewell and his new Rocky Mtn 29er. _ This guy never gets lost…He is a human compass.
One of my favorite moments.
Now for a few pics of our campsite with no fees and campfires allowed.
One of the coolest things was see a California Condor…. This is CC #92.
We are planning another trip to the north rim next October.
Here are the Strava maps.

What a fabulous trip! I am envious! Awesome… Could I ride my BMW F800 GS? Or would I have to ride my Trek? 🙂
Steve, that was a very memorable trip, and I can’t wait to go back next year!
