Day 1 of a 2-day Rim to Rim to Rim started off leaving my house on Day 1 at midnight, meeting up with the guys from Phoenix to ride in the flying Focus. My 2nd R2R2R, though this one was a 2-day rather than a 4-day, so not as many extra side trips as before.

Started our trip from South to North by watching 30 elk hanging out near the Bright Angel trailhead on top. Then as we reached the South Kiabab trailhead we saw a dozen mule deer. Amazing with all the crowds of people that they hang around in such numbers. Started down the hole at 6:35am, and made it to the junction at North Kiabab at 9:10am.

Lunch at Ribbon Falls was spectacular as you would expect. On the way out I even found patches of spearmint growing down there. Had delightful weather all along, except during the last mile and a half up beyond Supai Tunnel. It started raining. Thankfully I didn't pack so light that I didn't leave my umbrella behind, it was priceless! It started easing off again until after we took the Bridle Trail to the lodge on the North Rim, then plenty of lightning and rain.

Running just as heavily as it was in 10/2010. My guess is it never stops!
