Our next stop after Mesa Verde was The Grand Canyon. We decided to stay on the north rim rather than the main park because I had read it was a more relaxed campground. My research proved true and the campground was very relaxed and exactly right for us. We stayed in their tent only section, and it was right next to the rim of the canyon. We were able to walk right to the edge and watch the sunset on our first night.
The next morning we took a little hike before our 11am check out time. We really wish we had more time to spend there and the north rim has made our list of places we want to go back to and explore more.
