Driving along the road in the Canyon park there is a turnoff to the Grandview lookout tower.
In a half a mile you exit the park boundary and are then in the Kaibab National Forest which means
The next day I took the short one mile walk to the tower
and decided to climb up. Why not?
Well for one reason you are at 7500 feet in elevation so it isn't all that simple.
Slow and easy does it.
Then once finally at the top you discover the trapdoor into the lookout is locked!
A cruel joke by the Forest Service.
Still it is a Grand View to be had standing under the floor.
