    It was pretty mild at the rims but the weather in the box got really hot. It was about 92 there when we hiked through it. I was ok because I live in the area, but had some friends from the East Coast that were not having such a great time.

    North Rim is great. I really enjoyed the bottom of the canyon. You see it from the rim and it does not do it justice. You get down there into the middle and you realize that you are in so deep you can't even see the rims anymore, yet the rock formations that appear from the top to be so small are towering over you by a thousand feet. I would go back and do a Rim to Rim in a heartbeat, could likely do it in two days with 1 camp out night at Bright Angel if you really wanted to. Rim to Rim to Rim was great, but turning around and doing it all over again to almost 50 miles was enough for once. Besides, gonna go somewhere else next year. Thinking Tahoe Rim Trail.

    Well done. While I've only hiked down into The Canyon on either side a couple miles, I think the North Rim is, hands-down, the best part of the park. My aunt wants to do a Rim-to-Rim, but I'd be more than happy to camp on the Kaibab while she does her thing.

    Great photos! I have spent most of my life in the Northeast so I love seeing terrain like this, so different than what I'm used to.

    Camped at Great River Bluff State Park in Minnesota last weekend.

    Beautiful Park to hike in.

    Just lost interest in posting for a bit, but wanted to share some photos from my Rim 2 Rim 2 Rim of the Grand Canyon with some buddies last month. It was an excellent trip, we did it over 5 days and I can't wait to try something a bit longer next time.



    Mule Train heading up S Kaibab


    Down in "The Box"


    Campsite at Cottonwood


    View from about 80% of the way up the North Rim. No better photos can really be taken further up than that because treeline is so thick you can't see out of it.


    View from the River trail, had to do part of this because the Silver Bridge was closed by the time we waited for canteen to open and get some M&Ms to fuel up with pure sugar to get out.


    Near Plateau Point heading up to Indian Gardens for one more night of camping.


    Done! Best part was that due to COVID the shuttles were not running, so we got to walk about 3 more miles from here to the van still parked at the visitor center. I couldn't stand being in my hiking boots any more so I did the last 3 miles in my Crocs, lol.
    Judging by the photo, the trip turned out to be wonderful. Was the weather so wonderful all the days?

    By using hiking as a way to stay physically active, you can potentially lose weight, reduce heart disease, decrease hypertension, and slow the aging process. It also offers mental health benefits by reducing stress and anxiety.This made me love hiking.

    Wonderful photos. I myself love hiking, but now the weather is not conducive, slush and mud is not the best weather for walking.

    I always check the elevation gain on Alltrails

    This is just where the rocks started... It got a hell of a lot worse but at this point the phone went away

    Fun story, today I took a 7.8 mile loop along the AT and a little side trail called Sunset Rocks, which turned out to be 8.4 miles, but who's counting. Around 5, 5.5 miles in, I hit Little Rocky Ridge, which is best described as a little slice of the Emyn Muil along the top of a mountain ridge. I carefully and slowly pick my way over rocks and around boulders (perched on a ridge, mind you), always looking for--and occasionally not finding--the next blue blaze, which marks what can only loosely be described as a trail at this point. Did I mention it was now 3:30? Far too late to go back.

    Long story short, I did manage to get down the mountain side before dark (even though the actual trail was over a half mile longer than expected) with no broken bones or twisted joints. Otherwise Axel might have been naught but a mansicle somewhere out in Michaux State Forest this evening.

    Nah, I was well dressed with extra provisions and emergency supplies including warmth, and the Mrs knew exactly where I was going, so it'd probably have been a couple miserable hours waiting for rescue, but still... Next time I'm leaving an extra hour for sunset, and paying better attention to the elevation gain instead of just counting miles
