The North Rim Section of Grand Canyon National Park

It’s tough to get over just how picturesque the scenery is
here in northern Arizona in the region surrounding the Grand Canyon. Hardly a
day goes by here where we aren’t taken aback by the majestic red sandstone
cliffs towering over the Colorado River, or the many other natural features of
the terrain here.
Many of our fly fishing clients come to check out the
impressive natural views that are only available in this corner of the country,
thanks mainly to the Grand Canyon. Not many may be aware, however, that one of
the best opportunities to view the grandeur of this natural wonder without
having to deal with heavy crowds is within a few hours of our fishing hole.
As this article published by The Las Vegas
Review-Journal
points out, the North Rim section of Grand Canyon
National Park in northeastern Arizona is visited far less often by tourists
coming by to gaze at the canyon. However, this in itself is a great reason to
check out the North Rim, as overcrowding at the South Rim site is a common
complaint.
The elevation of the North Rim is about 1,000 feet higher
than the South Rim’s elevation, and as a result, the North Rim experiences
cooler temperatures throughout the year, making it a great summer lookout
location. The cooler temperatures also support a range of natural fauna and
wildlife, including bobcats, deer, wild turkeys and more. There are also plenty
of public facilities for outdoor recreation, including hiking trails, mule
trains and a Grand Canyon Lodge with plenty of amenities.
We know that you’ll come visit us because of the quality
angling experiences you’ll have here, but you’ll stay to check out the views a
little longer. If you’re visiting this region from far away, make sure to check
out the nearby national park and the many natural splendors that make this
region a once-in-a-lifetime destination.
