The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is entirely different than the South rim. It's a thousand feet higher, forested all the way to the edge in pine and aspen, and it is free from the crowds of the South Rim. It is very easy to find solitude there: the pine scent and cool breezes are truly alpine in character.
This view is just a few steps from the Grand Canyon Lodge, which is roughly 20 winding miles from the north gate and another 20 or so to Jacob Lake, the nearest 'town' which is really just a gas station and a campgrounds at the junction of the road with AZ 89.
