Day 5 -- Destination: Page, AZ


Day 5
Destination: Page, AZ
Riding Miles: 267

This day brought us into the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and to Glen Canyon Dam. Before entering the Grand Canyon we drove though a long stretch of the Kaibab National Forest that had acres of fire damaged. Once in the park we came across a herd of buffalo with a few new babies that were relaxing in a meadow. The North Rim of the Grand Canyon was still pretty impressive even though the south rim is much wider.

Leaving the Grand Canyon and getting back onto AZ-89 we left the forest and entered the desert valley. It was probably as hot as it was in Moab, 100+. The road was straight and flat and pretty much boring, that was a good time for me to put in headphones and listen to Matchbox Twenty the entire way to Page.

That evening at sunset we drove to Glen Canyon Dam and were impressed by its massive size.
