    RR: Another report from the Kaibab (X-post from AZ)

    Finally got around to posting my Kaibab MX recap. Tons of pics from our northern gem. Get up there if you can.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for re-kindling my love for, and fascination with, the Kaibab. I spent the summer after my 1st year of college working in the gas station @ Jacob Lake. I spent every free minute hiking and riding the area. Now I dream of the day I will return with my wife and kids to show them around the beauty of the North Rim. I think anyone who only sees the Canyon from the south is missing everything. Thanks for the great report, and for stirring up lots of fond memories!

    Great pics and ride report - thanks for posting! Looks like it was quite an adventure. Running out of tubes /Stans with miles to go would be nerve racking.

    Thanks for the kind words. I agree, people who only view the Canyon from the S.Rim are missing out! Yeah, the tire/sealant issues were a bit unsettling, at least hwy67 was never too far away. Not sure if I mentioned it, but when Josiah & Mark caught up to me at the east rim overlook they provided me with an extra tube for peace of mind.
