Kaibab National Forest

After leaving Marble Canyon and the Navajo Bridge we started going up the Kaibab Plateau which has an elevation of over 9,000 feet. We got gas at a station near Jacob’s Lake and began heading south on Highway 67 (which is closed from November – March, or so) through the Kaibab Forest. It’s a 45 minute drive from Jacob’s Lake to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

Our first of many buffalo sightings
We aren’t the type of people to wait in a line to take our picture next to a sign. I had to crop out the people who were having their picture taken. I just took one from the car.

Next up – more North Rim pictures form the good camera,
