This is a week late, but better later than never. We had wanted to go camping two weeks ago but it was very cold that weekend so I watched the weather all week to make sure it warmed up nice and warm. Well the weather said we would have a low of 38 out on the Kiabab (National Forest next to the Grand Canyon) so off we went. Friday night when Eliza was ready for bed we left. We got to our campsite a little after 10 and the moon was just coming up. From the pictures you can see that our campsite was right on the edge of the Grand Canyon and although it was cold it still warmed up quite nicely. Saturday morning we went to some viewpoints and then went on a hike along the Rainbow Rim, the only mountain biking trail along the Rim of the Grand Canyon. It was beautiful and we will have to go back when we can take our bikes. On the way we met a friend and went to Red Cave Narrows and then it was home through all of the Utah Deer Hunters. Good thing we went camping in Arizona!
This is the view from our tent. Eliza kept track of some of the sleeping bags while we packed up in the morning.
She loves her tent.
Yeah it was still a little cold in the morning.
Eliza loves her backpack too. It reminds me of her grandma and grandpa in Burma riding on the covered cabs atop an elephant.
