Trip Report Marble Canyon, Vermillion Cliffs National Monument and Buffalo Ranch

Just spent a week in this fascinating piece of northern Arizona.
Our trip started at the Marble Canyon Lodge in Marble Canyon, Az. Nothing fancy. 70 bucks for two twin beds. We did not have reservations but you will need them after May.

From there we found a trail up to the top of Vermillion Cliffs. It was a very steep climb. We did it in one day but it would have been better if we spent the night up top. Views for miles. We camped the night at the trailhead.

Next day we drove out to House Rock Buffalo Ranch on well graded dirt roads. We saw no one else. We saw no buffalo either. We did see one of the best views of the Grand Canyon and camped right on the rim. It was windy.

The next couple days we spent driving and day hiking. Buckskin Gulch, Paria River canyon, Lees Ferry, Parai Ghost town. We camped out on BLM land. No permit. No one to bother us. Good times!!!! I can't wait to go back. Very beautiful and mostly empty part of the US.
