Hiking Tourist  Sucess!

Camped the North Rim...hiked everything that didn't involve long, long descents into hellish heat and/or mules. Uttered numerous "holy-craps!" and "wows!".

One note...don't expect a desert-ish North Rim; the forest is nice, thick, and runs right up to the rim.

South Kaibab   Sucess!

Hot, but awesome! Went to Skelton Point and returned to the rim for some Fat Tires.

Down & Back South Rim  Sucess!

2nd time down to Phantom Ranch and back. South Kaibab Trail down and Bright Angel back up. Took us 9 hours vs 7:47 the first time.

My first  Sucess!

My first backpacking trek. Hiked down the snow covered South Kaibab and up the Bright Angel. Spent two nights at Phantom Ranch. Feasted on "hikers' stew" and "all I could eat breakfast." Expensive, but worth every penny. Hiked out-and-back on the Clear Creek Trail the second day. Practically froze-to-death in my "old" sleeping bag during those cold November nights. So cold I couldn't sleep! Been hooked on getting away from the crowds every since.

Grandest Canyon on Earth  Sucess!

I've traveled my fair share, and this is the best view on Earth in my opinion. This was my fourth trip to the Canyon, and it will never disappoint, ever! No matter the time of day, or year, it will amaze you. I have hiked to the bottom via the Bright Angel trail before. This trip was just a stop by, to say hi and snap pics with my GF however!

S Kaibab Down Bright Angel Up  Sucess!

Fun hike it was pretty snowy and windy at the rim but conditions improved as my group descended down to Phantom Ranch.

Hiked the Bright Angel trail

Hot day in April on BA Angel trail. 100 degrees at the bottom, but worth the sweat

Many visits  Sucess!

I have visited Grand Canyon many times, hiked South Kaibab, North Kaibab, Bright Angel, Hermit, Horseshoe Mesa. Many of these inner hikes were done as a day hike although the park discourages it, most solo. One of my favorites was a run down South Kaibab, nap at the ranch, and up Bright Angel - about 10 hrs.

Best Hike of My Life?   Sucess!

South Kaibab to Tonto to Bright Angel = one of the most stunning hikes of my life! I am still undecided as to whether this hike or Zion Canyon is in first place.

Several touristy short hikes  Sucess!

Took the drive along the southern rim and tripped through a lot of snow on several different short jaunts to scenic overlooks. My Civic at the time barely had enough in it to make it through the decent amount of snow at the rim elevation, and still kicking myself for not bringing camping gear to hike down in and stay overnight.

Hermit Trail  Sucess!

To the rapids, very hot but very beutiful. To go between Hermit Creek Camp and Hermit Rapids I recommend stay in Hermit Creek instead of the trail, shorter and cooler.

North to South is an incredible run  Sucess!

We traditionally run from North Rim to South Rim on Friday and then do Havasupai on Saturday---makes for an incredible weekend. Makes for a sore Sunday and Monday!
