There are so many lookouts and potential places to boondock at the North Rim, I thought it would be a good idea to ask a ranger for a recommendation. The ranger said the roads to Point Sublime and Swamp Point are really rough, and she thought we should go to Crazy Jug because it has the best access and view.
The shorter drive to Crazy Jug (not recommended for trailers):
Don’t follow PDF Maps app if you’re going this route (the map is incorrect).
From the 67 to Crazy Jug: follow the signs for the 22 to 425 to 292
The smoothest drive to Crazy Jug (best option for trailers):
From Crazy Jug to the 67: 425 to 22
From the 67 to Crazy Jug: 22 to 425
Two miles up the road from Crazy Jug is Monument Point. On the way we passed this spot, it would be my pick if we were camping there. (36.432403, -112.410939)
Dinner Last Night:
Vegan Chickpea Flour Pancakes – another one of my favorite recipes from from Vegan Richa’s Indian Kitchen. In addition to being really tasty, the dry ingredients are easy to always have on hand making it a great option for when I run out of dinner supplies. We had them with string beans and sriracha mixed with vegenaise.
