Brian and Doug took a trip from the Denver, Colorado area to the Rainbow Rim area of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in June 2017.

Website photos, with captions, and slideshows (with music):
Rainbow rim area: On our way from Denver to the Grand Canyon, we camped overnight at Fremont Indian State Park, near Richfield Utah While at the North Rim, we camped one night at Fire Point (on the southern end of the Rainbow Rim) and 4 nights just south of Timp Point. During our stay we visited Fire. Timp, Parissawampitts and Fence points amd dayhiked several segments of the Rainbow Trail, which connects Timp Point on the south to Parissawampitts Point on north. We anticipate returning to the area in the future to hike more of Rainbow Rim Trail and to enjoy the beauty, the stunning views in the Canyon and solitude of the area;
Crazy Jug Point: We also drove around to and hiked out to Crazy Jug Point, which provided more great landscape and panoramic views. It is not technically on the Rainbow Rim, but is only a mile or so (as the crow flies) north and west of Parissawampitts Point on the north end of the Rainbow Rim.
