Route Climbed: Bright Angel Trail Date Climbed: June 1993
I hiked together with 2 companions from South Rim down to Phantom Ranch, where we spent 1 night in our tent. The next day I was thinking about taking the North Kaibab Route up to North Rim alone, because my companions did not have time for it. But because I was not sure, how secure it was to hike alone as woman, I followed my both companions the same way back to South Rim on Bright Angel Trail.
Pay attention to curious and hungry animals down in the valley. I left my backpack only for 10 minutes alone on the floor, and they even opened the zipper of my backpack while looking for food .....
We had not made any reservation in advance (neither for the campingground nor for the trail), but got a campingplace and a permission for the trail because some reservations expired.
