This is day one going down South Kaibab and up North Kaibab with a detour to Ribbons Falls via the bridge and including the Bridle Trail to the lodge. The hike started with a little confusion on which shuttle bus to take and when they started running so there was a slight delay but no problem. Once on the shuttle bus large bull elk and harem posed for us like we were a zoo tour. The was nice. On trail the previous day ran had wet down the dirt and it wasn't dusty. :o There were a few swimmers on S Kaibab but we skirted them and kept going. The hike was going well and the temps were nice until a few miles before Ribbon Falls. We hiked in the sun for an hour (no too bad) and stopped by Ribbon Falls for lunch. After cooling down at the falls. We continued on at our steady pace and some clouds rolled in coming up N Kaibab. We enjoyed the clouds but ended up getting rained on for the last hour up the trail. A little on the cold side. Once on the north rim the order was shower, eat and sleep by about 8p. Day 2 would start with a 5a wake up.
