Zion National Park to Kanab, Utah and
Grand Canyon North Rim
Kanab is pronounced: kuh-NABB (Thank you, Katlin!)
Once we were through the tunnel, I wanted to park and walk out to the canyon overlook, but the few parking spots were full and lines were waiting.
We decided we have already seen plenty and it was time to move on.
After leaving Zion National Park, we headed east on Rt 9 then south on
Rt 89 to Kanab, Utah to our next hotel.
It’s less than an hour from here.
GRAND CANYON – NORTH RIM
Just before reaching the Visitor Center, we turn east on the road to Point Imperial and Cape Royal.
Next, we drove south about 15 miles to the Cape Royal overlook.
NORTH RIM LODGE AND BRIGHT ANGEL POINT
Our last stop at the Grand Canyon North Rim was the Visitor Center
and the Bright Angel Point overlook.
BACK TO KANAB
Although we have to backtrack an hour to the hotel, we are now a day ahead of schedule.
Soon, we were back in the room getting ready for tomorrow’s drive to Kayenta, Arizona –
passing through the Vermillion Cliffs and Marble Canyon areas.
Hope you enjoyed riding with us today. See you tomorrow!
