Three free days, hmm, what do with them? They were during the week so nobody else was available to join in, not a problem though. The decision was more along the lines of, given my limited number of days to take a road/camping trip, where do I really want to go? I wanted something where I could enjoy the access the Xterra gave me on dirt roads and trails, but still wanted something unique and scenic enough. Options all over California came to mind, but when I realized that the North Rim of the Grand Canyon was only a few extra hours away I couldn’t resist.
So off I went on the 8 hour drive to the North Rim.
