Rob's Trip Reports
Found on the quiet side of the Grand Canyon and nearly 1000 feet higher in elevation, Arizona's Kaibab Plateau-North Rim Parkway is one of the state's most dramatic byways. The 42 mile drive wanders through the Kaibab Plateau, varying over the miles with open meadows, dense conifer forests and large stands of aspen. Not seeing near the amount of traffic as the South Rim, this section of the national forest offers a good chance to see the area's wildlife. Depending on the time of year, the park's large mammals, such as black bear, mule deer, pronghorn, and elk can be seen on the move.
