As we have always done when company comes to visit, we took Charlie and Lynda on a tour of the canyon. We decided to hike the Cape Royal trail. Now, before you get all excited and start telling me all about how I shouldn’t be hiking yet, let me tell you: the Cape Royal Trail is a handicapped accessible trail, it’s paved and relatively flat, and only about a half mile. And, there are several benches along the way for you to take rest. As you can see from the photo above, we all took advantage of the bench.
It was a beautiful day to be outside. The clouds were producing some thunderstorms on the South Rim, but here on the North Rim, it was gorgeous.
The canyon is deep. It is a very very long way down there.
We started seeing the lightening and hearing the thunder from across the canyon and realized it was coming our way, so we decided to start back towards the truck.
After one last stop at Vista Encantada to take a few more pictures, we headed back to the trailer. When we got home, I went to bed for the rest of the afternoon. We had a wonderful visit with our friends, and they had to leave all too soon. I wonder where we will be when we see them again?
