Any stay at the Canyon is always too short, but it was time to move on. After a leisurely drive along the East Rim, stopping to enjoy the sun rising on the Canyon with our coffee, we drove north to the Highway 89A cutoff, the Navajo Bridge across the Colorado River, the magnificent Vermilion Cliffs and then lunch in the campground at Jacob's Lake.
The next day we pushed on to Boise, Idaho, where we spent a relaxing and enjoyable 3 days with Jay's brother and his family, eating fresh vegetables and fruit from their amazing garden, and cheering on the Boise State Broncos at a football game.
I'll post this half of the trip now, so it doesn't get unbearably long, and so I don't keep putting it off! Thanks to my friends and followers for hanging with me! Next, it's off to the coast.
