You can’t stay at the historic Jacob Lake Inn, a nearly century-old community of cabins with a restaurant, general store and gas station, with a Kim Kardashian attitude. The cabins are spic and span and totally fine, but they’re simple and old-timey with a transporting Herbert Hoover or FDR vibe. (The place was built sometime in the mid 1920s.) Good wifi but no TVs. I love it here. Cool air, 8000 feet high and shrouded by towering pine trees, the Jacob Lake Inn is 55 minutes north (i.e., 42 miles) of the Grand Canyon’s North Rim. Which is where we’re headed early tomorrow morning.
