Take a Hike


When you do a river trip, you go past a spot in Marble Canyon known as Triple Alcoves.  I researched “North Rim Hikes” before our trip and found there’s a hike that takes one to a site on the rim over Triple Alcoves. It’s a 30 mile drive on gravel road to get to this little half-mile hike.  Not difficult at all, but preparation for the heat is essential.  Bring that lunch, plenty of water, your hat, maybe that long-sleeved white shirt, and your kerchief.  Let’s go!
