Description:

This National Park had some amazing views of a deep, dark canyon. It is really different than other parks, so it is worth a visit. There is a scenic drive with short walks to viewpoints. This Rim is very hard to find but worth getting lost. A unpaved but purely passible road takes you through the more rugged side of the canyon. We encountered very few people and had the overlooks to ourselves. A spin through the tiny campground brings you to the chasm view with a small nature walk. I am so glad I found information on this through research before I left - It is a secret, that is just not always available. Only an hours drive from the popular South Rim, off 92, but add in time for getting lost, you most likely will miss a turn sign. Just ask the locals - we did and the guy was wonderful to talk with to boot.
