214 miles today, nice and cool heading out which is a good thing because it is a long climb out of Kanab at 4000 ft up to the Kaibab Plateau at 8800 feet. Big vistas, is the canyon out there somewhere? Anyway, here’s what we do on the long drive to the north rim, way up there in the alpine meadow at 8800 feet.
In case you are wondering about the view from way out there,,,,,,
We did see Eldertons today just before they headed east on their month long junket. Rumor has it (from Nora) that Chuck actually took it S L O W on the climb up to North Rim yesterday in the heat of the day. Even Charlotte can be slowed down by 6% grades and 90 plus temperatures. Only time Charlotte has been seen going slow, period. Today was tire day, flats for Polland and Jorgensen, no obvious reason, just went flat.
