I know you want to get to Grand Canyon, one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, but wait – Stop at Jacob Lake (Not really a lake, just a gas station, restaurant and Lodge. Named for the founder Jacob Lake) on the way. The Lodge there has famous cookies! They usually have a great selection of awesome cookies. I love the “Cookie on a Cloud”. Grab a few for enjoying at the Rim
The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is about 1.25 hrs drive South of Kanab, Yet we are still the closest town of any size to this more remote treasure!
Because of its remoteness, the North Rim hosts only 10% of the annual 5 million international visitors. Thus, the North Rim offers a very different, more personal experience. Want to watch the sun set over the Grand Canyon in solitude? Then North Rim is for you!
