Cape Final and Transept

We haven't ventured far to hike, so in the last two weeks we repeated hikes from last year. Of course the views are still spectacular. Here we are at Cape Final.
Sherri doing a tree pose, I'm glad she has good balance.
A nice spot for lunch with a view.
On Saturday 8-11 the symphony from Kanab UT played at the North Rim on the veranda. I was asked to represent Forever Resorts and introduce Symphony of the Canyons. This is an annual event which Forever Resorts sponsors. There are 45 symphony members and there were 300 people in the audience. The veranda was packed. I am introducing the orchestra.

I think the audience is laughing at my joke, not a bad spot for some music, and the sunset was spectacular!
This past week we hiked the Widforss Trail which we did three times last year. It's an enjoyable five mile hike very close to where we live. The views of Transept Canyon are pretty good.
Also on this day we hiked over to Uncle Jim's Cabin which was really a cave in the side of the rocks. Uncle Jim was an early pioneer with many colorful stories. He was not very tall.
The meadow below is very pretty.
My sister arrives tomorrow for a four day stay, we are looking forward to showing her around where we live, play and work. Also, tomorrow the owner of Forever Resorts is bringing nine buses to the North Rim. I will be a step on guide for one of the buses and Sherri will be welcoming people in the Lodge area. It should be an interesting and busy Monday.

  1. You two have really found a niche at the North Rim. Can't wait to get out there and hope you two are still working there when we come;o))
