We drove to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon once finishing up hiking in Zion. The trees were in the middle of changing colors making the drive very pretty!

Once we got to the Grand Canyon we found out it was supposed to rain the next two days.

We went on a short 4 mile hike to an overlook, but once we got there we found it to be too foggy to see anything.

On the way back to the car, it poured! We were soaked! Luckily, we were able to get a campsite from a cancellation at the main campground as the Visitors Center and put our clothes in the dryer.

The Visitors Center was about a mile from our campsite so drove over there. They have a nice restaurant as we as coffee shop/bar overlooking the canyon. We then bought some Elk Chili and a bottle of red wine which we took back to the campsite.
