Thanks for the great pictures. N Rim is one of our favorite places.

Thanks for the kind words! And Mike, you are exactly right -- there is very little colorful fall foliage in Southern California. So that's why we head out in search of aspen groves during the fall.

Maple would be nice, too, but we are three thousand miles away from Vermont!
If you can get to NE Iowa or Minnesota, you should be able to see some great autumn colors. Here's a map showing where maple syrup is obtained from maple trees:

Glad to see someone else has ridden the AZ trail in that area. We rode access roads from camp and did something like 10 miles of singletrack from north of the park boundary. We saw no one else out there all day. But a relatively easy and remote trail. We completed the loop by riding back to AZ 67 and back to DeMotte CG where we were camped.

Not the same kind of views as the Rainbow Rim trail, but definitely less crowded.

Wow! I had no idea the Rainbow Rim trail had gotten crowded. When we were there in late May of 2008, we didn't see anyone else in three days of riding.

I am not sure I could handle that trail today -- that was 13 years ago, and I was not young at that time!

The portions of the Arizona Trail up on the Kaibab Plateau are fairly easy (although we did have to watch out for roots and rocks). But the parts that drop down off the rim are pretty difficult.
