Stop, don’t drive up to the North Rim expecting a room at the inn. Even the Autumn leaves are falling fast.
But of course the canyon isn’t going anywhere.
October 15th marks the last night cabin lodging at the North Rim is available. Breakfast on the 16th is the last meal served for the season. I’ll be there with staff for the last breakfast. Think about making reservations for next year when we reopen May 15th.
You can still camp on a first-come-first-serve basis until the entire North Rim closes, scheduled for the morning of November 26th. Or sooner if measurable snow falls first. Then the gate at Jacob Lake will be closed for the winter.
The South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is open all year. But usual winter snow of 15 feet make the North Rim inaccessible by car. You can however hike across canyon and camp with a permit.
Although I gave my last geology talk of the season I’ll be hanging around just a little longer for a special event that I’ll share later. Then I have some really big plans coming up. Surprise!
Even the Mahogany shows fall color.
