After driving for about half and hour through what seemed like an endless road, we finally started seeing a different type of landscape. We were entering what is called the Kaibab National Forest area.

Kaibab National Forest covers an area of about 1.6 million acres, and borders both the north and the south rims of the Grand Canyon. The forest plateau apparently can reach elevations up to 9,000 feet in certain locations.

As we entered the forest area, the scenery changed dramatically from rocks and grasses to all kinds of interesting trees, including pine, Douglas-fir, Engelmann spruce, blue spruce, aspen, oak, pinyon pine, and juniper. It was awesome. Too bad that the colours have not really changed that much yet; but being there was good enough for me. It meant that the entrance to the North Rim is almost there. Yey!!!

Hope you like this image too.

Since joining RB I’ve greatly enjoyed being part of a lovely community of wonderful people. I’ve also made some new friends that I hope to meet one day in person. I have several passions/hobbies/professions (music, photography, martial arts & yes environmental engineering to name a few)! I am very blessed being able to work in all of these. Please feel free to visit & provide honest opinion on my photos as I am still learning (a day that goes by without learning anything is a wasted day).

    My children used to say that at least every ten minutes when we went on trips. Wonderful shot!

  • This trip reminded of that too Shulie. I used to say that to my parents all the time. I said it many times on this trip that my buddy got sick of me saying that (LOL). I guess I was just eager to get to the Canyon’s North Rim before dark. Thanks for the wonderful feedback Shulie.

    Lovely, the trees and the landscape are really different from what we have seen thus far…nice to see, along the journey!

  • Hi Brenda; yes t he landscape is very different here in this part of northern Arizona; more forest like with lots of interesting trees; and because it was close to the first week of October, some of the colours also started changing too, which kind of made it a bit more inetresting. Thanks Brenda for the visit and for the lovely comment. Glad you are enjoying this journey with me. Hany

    My dear Hany………………this is getting interesting………………..I love roads like this……………empty with no hedges, just fields running off into the distance to meet up with the lovely trees………………colours are autumnal and beautiful………………..sometimes you have to do the tedious stuff in between to get to the good bits………………..I do hope you are well and I long to hear and see more of this amazing journey…………………your little lover of empty country roads in Ireland………………….Joyce!!

  • My dear, dear Joyce…..yes this was interesting indeed in the sense that the landscape just changed all of a sudden….. the rather large and empowering red rocks just disappeared before the flat lands for a while before the roads opened up to a wide forest full of interesting tall trees of all kinds…… the colours were just starting to turn with a hint of yellows and reds and oranges, which was lovely……. and the stuff in between was not tedious at all as it was all very enjoyable and pleasant to look at…….. more of this journey is coming to a screen near you pretty soon…. so stay tuned my dear…….. thank you for traveling with me….. I hope your not tired yet of all this driving and hiking stopping and going and the sun and the heights and the peaks and the valleys and and and……… from your “love to travel the roads to nowhere and everywhere” friend……Hany
