The plan was to drive to Death Valley and do Shorty's Well to Telescope Peak this weekend. A warm front rolled in and we aborted plan A and went with plan B. Shiva Temple it would be. After all how hot could it be on the north rim?

We arrived late Friday night/Early Saturday Morning and crashed out in freezing temps. Scott woke up with ice on his sleeping bag. I was thankful to be sleeping in the Jeep but it was still cold in there. Around 7am we hit the trail and started making our way through the woods. An hour later we were shedding layers.

Once at the Tiyo/Shiva Point junction we turned and headed towards Shiva Point. It is a beautiful walk through the trees where there once was an old road. From Shiva Point the route is well carined and fairly easy to follow. At Shiva the route works it's way around the base and then scrambles up to the top.

Up top we immediately found the notorious milk jugs and signed the register. Last entry was 7/8/13 by John Domaska and a guy named Thomas. The day prior to that Dave1 was there. Plenty of other recognizable names in the register including Glenn Rink which is Richards Uncle.

Naturally we wanted to go across the top and look down at Isis and all across the canyon. I must say the views from Shiva are spectacular. In the distance you can see Red Butte and the San Francisco Peaks. We soaked it all in for quite some time and then headed back the way we came.

On our drive out we made a quick pit stop at the north rim lodge and then headed for Jacob Lake. On the way out of the park we saw a large heard of Bison. I had a little fun with them while taking their picture.

Tasty burgers at Jacob Lake and then off to Marble Canyon Lodge where we had a hot shower and a room waiting for us.

This was a great trip and I really enjoyed the company of both Scott and Richard. Thanks for suggesting this one Scott and thanks for coming along Richard! Good Times!
