We drove the hour plus from Flagstaff to the south rim Grand Canyon, which is similar to Zion in that it’s mostly a shuttle based park. Meaning it’s pretty crowded. We just explored the rim today, but if/when we come back, we’ll hike Bright Angel and/or Grandview, and rafting the river looks pretty amazing! And who knows, maybe even an R2R or R2R2R is in the future — just not at this time of year – way too hot!
We got back to Flagstaff around 8:30 and just had time to eat at Diablo Burgers, which we all agreed was pretty amazing! Granted, we were all very hungry, but I think it was outstanding and wouldn’t be opposed to going back today for lunch and/or dinner!
