It's been a lot of work and not much playing lately. All management has been busy getting ready for a voluntary inspection by the Arizona OSHA team. By passing, Forever Resorts North Rim earns a coveted designation which few companies have passed. Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) exempts the North Rim from OSHA inspections for three years and puts a feather in Forever Resort's cap. The OSHA team was here this past week and it looks like Forever Resorts North Rim will gain the VPP designation.
We did make it over to Saint George, Utah two weeks ago to have the truck serviced, and if you remember a couple of blogs ago we blew a tire, so I wanted two new tires for the truck. We accomplished all the truck stuff at the Saint George Ford and then headed to WalMart to shop for the last month that we are here.
Sherri and I did get in one hike from Point Imperial to the Saddle Mountain Wilderness trail-head. Point Imperial is the highest point at the North Rim, 8,803'. The views to the east are fantastic and the Aspens are golden. Here are few photos from the hike:
Three more weeks at the North Rim.

We had many cool cloudy days in a row so Sherri and I decided to go for a hike into the canyon, of course we saw few clouds and it was 90 deg, two miles down.

My sister Susan came to the North Rim for a visit. We had a good time during her three day stay. Dinner at the Lodge, an evening at the Cookout and an excursion to Point Imperial and Cape Royal highlighted Susan's visit. I am pointing out land marks in the canyon from Bright Angel Point.
