I would recommend you not attempt a rim 2 rim dayhike.I do 2 to 3 hikes a year and I'm in good shape. However I have never hiked the Grand Canyon.
I agree. Save it for a cooler time of year when you can enjoy it more.nonot wrote:I would recommend you not attempt a rim 2 rim dayhike.I do 2 to 3 hikes a year and I'm in good shape. However I have never hiked the Grand Canyon.
I do 2 to 3 hikes a WEEK and I'm in good shape. (The rest of the days I bike.) I have hiked the Grand Canyon at least 15 times.ShihanPaul wrote:I do 2 to 3 hikes a year and I'm in good shape. However I have never hiked the Grand Canyon.

My personal hiking philosophy/personality/tendency is to take my time and savor the outdoors anywhere I hike. I’m not out there to race anyone (as anyone who has hiked with me can attest to), and I’ve never been very competitive. But I also take a “live and let live” attitude towards those who like to push themselves and do these types of things. I can understand anyone who wants to be able to brag about accomplishing a R2R just as peak baggers do for that sort of thing. For better or worse, the so-called “American spirit” has a large element of exploration and conquest, so this is just a natural extension of that.azbackpackr wrote:What is this freaking obsession with R2R that seems to have taken hold of the world?
Doesn't that depend on the perspective of the beholder?azbackpackr wrote:The Grand Canyon is NOT a challenge course
You can lead a horse to water....etc. I'm with you in principle, but I never get worked up enough to try to make someone think differently than they're wired to.azbackpackr wrote:how are they going to know about some of the other values if some of us don't try to talk to them about it?
