标 题: Re: Grand Canyon North rim OR South rim

The feeling is totally different. I remembered that the road side views are
South rim is popular and camping sites are plenty. And people are plenty too.
You can see the canyon long and wide. And the road along the canyon rim is
long too. You are always close to the canyon, except the east tower part. The
road to south rim is more dry-area like in my memory, short bushes and etc.
But you can have some side-trip to see other forms of red canyons, butts and
North rim is much quieter. highway 67 is really nice, alpine-meadow like.
People can find peace here, even in camp site. The facility is decent too (
nice shower). But the canyon view may be limited in some people's opinion.
Each view point is kind of different and far apart, 30 to 45-mins drive in
woods not along canyon rim. But I like that road to cape-royal. Flowers bloom
along the winding road. Nice sunset too.
For me, if I will visit GC aagin, I probably choose north rim.
But for new comer, maybe south rim can give you more canyon.
