Point Sublime is at the end of an 18-mile one-way(I say one-way because you may not make it back), never easy, rugged road along the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Few venture out to this spectacular viewpoint of the Grand Canyon but the effort is worth the rewards. I was a bit worried taking on this road because it had rained a lot recently which could present issues. I’ve been stuck before! Recently! Of course I started in Utah and passed through Zion National Park on my way to the Kaibab Plateau.

This aster was still blooming in mid-september
Grand Canyon National Park is more than just a canyon. It has beautiful forests along the rim.
Caught this deer through my windshield
Had to ford about 25 giant puddles.
Downed trees also presented a problem.
The drive was worth it. This is only part of the 300 degree view of The Grand Canyon you get at Point Sublime. More photos to follow of the stormy Point Sublime
