After a filling breakfast at the Kaibab Lodge we headed west on Forest Road 22 to go camping at Crazy Jug Point.
Stopped at Dry Park Lookout Tower but decided not to climb to the top. This is as far as Mike got. I’ve been up it before so that was alright with me.
We drove very slowly through the Ponderosa forest blanketed with wildflowers.
Made a detour to check out West Lake which was almost dried up to nothing yet was ringed with some very old fencing from ranching days.
We continued on Forest Road 425 down into a small narrow canyon among the Juniper and Pinyon woodlands.
And finally found ourselves at the rim, looking vast distances across the canyon.
We were treated to an amazing show as a rain storm came towards Crazy Jug Point.
Then as the rain passed over us the lowering sun shone through.
To create the most spectacular light.
The vultures soared overhead.
And after the rain a promise fulfilled.
Plus a glorious sunset to end our day of play.
