Crazy Jug Point
It was now the third day of my week-long visit to the north rim. I’d seen enough paved walkways and steel safety rails already, so I reached for my recently acquired Kaibab National Forest map and began tracing the forest service roads to a lesser known viewpoint I’d seen in a few photos. Crazy Jug Point was about 25 miles from rte 67, the paved road that delivers visitors to the main Grand Canyon Visitors Center. The route was easy to follow, the road was rocky and “wash-boarded” out. I saw several healthy looking mule deer along the drive. Arriving at the point a few hours before sunset, I had enough time to scout the area and take an afternoon nap.
This shot is looking straight out over the point, perhaps 10 minutes before the sun set below the horizon.
