Lees Ferry

Today we've arrived at a place called Lees Ferry, which is technically the start of the Grand Canyon. Not too much further on our travels to go now before we reach the North Rim, we should arrive by this afternoon!

Lees Ferry is a site on the Colorado River, in Coconino County. Nowadays Lees Ferry is mainly used for fishing, however in the late 19th century and early 20th century, Lee's Ferry was the only crossing of the Colorado River by ferry between Moab, Utah and Needles, California; it was heavily used by travelers between Utah and Arizona.

See you soon North Rim! x
