The day time highs have finally moved into the low 80's, with night time lows around 50. We still have to run the heater once in a while first thing in the morning. The tourist season is in full swing and the gift shop is very busy. We are open from 8:00am - 9:00pm and the store is crowded most of the time. When I close two days a week we have people wanting to get into the store after nine since there isn't much to do at the North Rim after dark. This past week amateur astronomers had their telescopes set up along the rim and we had great views of Saturn. I did not get any pictures of the astronomers, it was dark, but I did get a good photo of the sunset on our way to the Star Gazing Party.
Thursday was hiking day three miles down the Kaibab Trail to red wall bridge, and three miles up. The picture of the bridge is from about half-way down.
Till next Sunday
