We had a beautiful time in the canyon. It’s a magical place, you know. No electricity, no phone, no computer. Just lots of fresh air, beautiful scenery, wildlife, sun and stars.
Our group kind of fell apart at the last minute leaving just me and the hubby on our own. It didn’t stop us. We hiked down, set up camp and enjoyed being alone, together. Bliss! We didn’t want to leave.
We hike down on Thursday, which is a 7 mile hike down on the South Kaibab trail to Phantom Ranch. We set up camp at Bright Angel campground and stayed two nights and one day. On Saturday morning we hiked out Bright Angel Trail which is 9 miles up and out. Exhausting, but worth every step.
Next time we go (in a few years) we’re taking the kids. I can’t wait to show them this magnificent place in person.
