The beautiful Grand Canyon and its Bright Angel Trail, on 23 December 2009. The Bright Angel Trail is the most popular trail in the entire canyon, but it's one I enjoy hiking again and again. I have hiked it over 40 times, and it's always different, every time. This day was no exception, with all that beautiful fresh snow, just a few hours after a storm had passed.
On this hike, the snow extended down to about the Three-Mile Resthouse, at around elevation 4750 feet.
