We actually walked part of this trail twice. Once on Sept 18th, after picking up the R2R2Rers and then again Sept 20 before heading to the winding road up to Cape Royal before heading back to Phx.

It really is quite the trail, not only for the views but you have to walk up a good pace or down a good pace depending. Of course, the scenery is incredible every which way you look. Saturday nite we walked out on the east side of the trail to get some sunset photos including with the earth's shadow (a new term to me).

Monday morning we missed the sunrise so after breakfast we went out on the west side point of the trail and walked back to the "oh my God" view cabins. It was a lovely morning with a few Fraleys floating around. I particularly like the area that you take steps to where you can look through windowless spaces that frame your view.

Here is a short video from the west point of Bright Angel Point Trail: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDyRe0I-Ft8

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
