Join archaeologist Don Keller and wildlife biologist Heather Green for an in-depth exploration of the area through day hikes of the rim and upper canyon trails. You will have the opportunity to experience personally the unique character of the North Rim. Dinners at the lodge and evenings at the cabins will provide us time to connect and reflect on our days’ adventures. Readings, weather information, and equipment recommendations will be provided prior to our trip.

We will be traveling by 12 passenger van leaving from and returning to MNA.  Our accommodations will be in the North Rim Lodge’s Pioneer cabins. September is usually one of the most pleasant times of the year in northern Arizona although it is important to be prepared for possible extremes.
