It had been two summers since hubby and I had last been up on the Rim. And, you know, we both missed it. There's something about that high, lonely place that calls to us. Maybe it is the fact that there aren't many people up there? I mean, both Heber and Overgaard are small towns. Hubby is from a small town in Pennsylvania (Meadville, in western PA) and I was raised in a relatively small suburb of Los Angeles (Arcadia). We just like getting up there and settling into a cabin and, well, enjoying the peace and quiet. I enjoy watching the squirrels and the local wildlife and hubby enjoys just doing nothing! :-)
Anyway, these are some of the first views of the Rim and its treasures that we saw last week. It's a world very different from our desert one.
