Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon
The Kaibab National Forest straddles the Grand Canyon with about 1,400 square miles of pine forest along the South Rim and another 1,000 square miles along the North Rim. Hwy-180 passes through the Kaibab as it approaches the Grand Canyon's southern entrance.
The forest headquarters is in Williams, Arizona.
This picture was taken also from the small airplane,here you ca see:The Kaibab National Forest sits on the north and south rims of the Grand Canyon -,its two halves forever separated by the mile-deep ravine. The lower desert areas of the North Kaibab differ drastically from the alpine slopes of Kendrick's Peak in the South Kaibab. Rolling fields of pinyon-juniper give way to the striking symmetry of aspen groves and lush pine forests.
In 1908, the Forest Reserve north of the Grand Canyon was renamed the Kaibab National Forest. In 1934, the Tusayan National Forest south of the Grand Canyon was consolidated into the Kaibab National Forest.If you like nature and see nice landscapes apart of the Canyon,this is your place!
