4Xploring Let's Explore the Back Country

2020 Fall Adventure Recap

North Rim of the Grand Canyon, AZ
October 19-23, 2020

On this adventure, we had Megalander, a RAM PowerWagon, 1 Jeep Gladiator, a Jeep Wrangler JK and 2 JK Unlimiteds, a Jeep TJ and a TJ Unlimited, a built Jeep Grand Cherokee and a classic 1958 Jeep Wagon.  We explored most of the Eastern portion of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  Along the way, we walked through slot canyons, went on some hikes, did some rock climbing, visited an old one-room school house, saw ancient petroglyphs and found perhaps the only remaining ancient pictographs where the colors were preserved.  We had some truly epic camp sites, both in the woods and along the rim of the Grand Canyon, and had some utterly fantastic meals.

Here are some notes on this adventure from participant Wayne Bennett.  More photos from this awesome adventure follow.
