Crazy Jug Point
I talked to a Ranger at the Kaibab Forest Information Station. I told her I was looking for a spot on the canyon rim such that if I crawled out the escape window of my Casita, I would fall 2,000 ft. She didn't miss a beat pointing out a couple of points on the map. Crazy Jug Point came pretty close to my request. I backed the trailer down a hill to position the trailer next to the shade of the Juniper. There were deep canyons on either side of the point and sweeping views of the canyon immediately behind my Casita. Cliffrose was in bloom in the foreground. Each evening I pulled my chair over to the rim and watched the changing light.
"This point features great views and good access roads at an elevation of 7,500 feet. Pinyon pine, cliff rose, and some ponderosa grow here. A walk of a few hundred feet from the parking area leads to the overlook. The Colorado River comes out from behind the Powell Plateau, wraps around Great Thumb Mesa, then winds far downstream. Dark, forested volcanoes of Mt. Trumbull and the rest of the Uinkaret Mountains rise to the west. Directly below are Crazy Jug Canyon, Tapeats Amphitheater, and other parts of the Tapeats Creek drainage. The lineup of Fence, Locust, North Timp, Timp, and Fire Points marks the Kaibab Plateau to the southeast. Forest Road 22 provides access either from the east edge of Fredonia (US 89A between Mileposts 607 and 608) or from DeMotte Park (0.8 mile south of the North Rim Store on AZ 67), then you'll follow Forest Roads 425 and 292B. Cars can do this trip in dry weather."
