A summit log without a summit(?) Strange...

But anyway, I had a fantastic experience and enjoyed the beauty and dramtic landscape of Grand Canyon.

After an early morning snow, crawled out of the tent, packed up and hiked down Bright Angel to the camp across the silver bridge to spend the night. Then up the South Kaibab the next day. A great experience! Next time though, I'll try a route not used by the mules.

It was well over 100F in the canyon, a fan was needed, but we just went in the water most of the time! The waterfalls are the most beautiful I've ever seen (better than Hawaii).

Well, this double crossing (or R3 as some canyon aficionados call it) has been on my list for a long time. I finally got the chance to do it. Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of summer (for everywhere else except Arizona). I found it to be plenty hot already. I did this hike over 2 days (had to stay at the North Rim since that was my first visit), and both days it was well over 100 degrees. Ouch!



A friend was organizing a north rim to south rim hike on the 24th, so I told him that I would hike over to meet them on the north rim and hike back with them. The trip to the north rim was quite a bit harder than going up the south rim. The stretch between Cottonwood camp and the top was an unrelenting 7 miles of steep grades! I was glad that I enjoyed the scenery too much to worry about my aching calves. Made the crossing in about 10.5 hours, just in time to meet up with the gang that drove to the north rim.



I had gotten some nasty blisters on the way over to the north, so I had seriously considered bypassing the hike back. But by morning, I felt better so I decided to go for it. It was quite the experience to hike into the canyon when you are already sore and achy, especially knowing how long you have to go and seeing everyone around you all fresh and happy. But again, the sheer pleasure of being part of that incredible landscape seemed to cure my ills. We made excellent time down, and took some time to loiter around Ribbon Falls. Absolutely amazing! I love that you can get right behind it and look out through the waterfall. (see picture).



After much pain through The Box area and hobbling Bright Angel with blistered feet, I finally made it out (among the leaders of the pack no less) in about 12 hours (including time spent at Ribbon Falls). Awesome experience, and some time I hope to do the double crossing in one day.

Five days in the ditch. Way too short of a stay. Must return soon. Some of the best views I've ever had.

This hike is awesome! Canyon splendor and waterfalls to boot! I would have to say that Havasu Canyon contains three of the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen! As always, feel free to check out our extended trip report and tons of photos on our personal website at Natural Born Hikers

Many routes and many canyons. All of my trips have been away from any trails since 1989. To experience "The real Grand Canyon" you must hike days away from any trails.

I've done this route three times now. The Canyon is always beautiful. I've done the round trip in anywhere from 6 hours to two days, depending on my partner. If you hike or back pack, it's a must.

This is a great trip. I have done it several times and will do it again. The falls are spectacular and portions of the trail are breath taking.

One of my favorite hikes of all time. The north rim is the best kept secret of the Grand Canyon. A lot cooler, not as many tourons, and.....just nice. See our trip report with photos here.

Nice day hike. I motored down the south side trail pretty quickly, stopped briefly at the bottom, then the North Rim trail up. I think it is about 21 miles total. My first trip to the Canyon. Would love to spend some time exploring down there. My time was just over 6.5 hours. Looks like some great whitewater down there.

My husband, J, and I have been down in the Grand Canyon on several occassions and via several different trails. The only date I'm sure of is this one, our last visit into the Grand Canyon. It's an enchanted and addicting place. I'm not done with it yet.
