We arrived the evening before to set up camp for the ABC event at the North Rim Campground of the Grand Canyon. Wendy brot her TajMahal that I was able to stay in and I brot my brand new blow up mattress as well as other amenities for our 4 nite stay. We had the perfect place in the campground as the store and showers were only a hop skip and jump away.

This morning, we planned to do a few different hikes rather than a long one as we both had not been hiking for a few weeks. We decided to do only the Interpretive part of the Widforss Trail. I had done the whole trail back in Sept 2010. (We would later do the Transept/Bright Angel Point Trail before getting lunch at the Lodge Deli).
This is such a nice warm-up type hike though the vistas are limited. There was some wildflowers to keep us entertained and of course, Professor Wendy kindly agreed to read the brochure at each of the stops along the way.

There weren't too many people on the trail. It was a nice day with broken clouds and a slight breeze. We made our way back quickly with very few stops. I had convinced Wendy we should have lunch at the Lodge's Deli and they have some great soft ice cream too.

Here is the 5 minute video: http://youtu.be/7XQU_SMZgtg
Oh, may I suggest you change the quality on youtube to HD1080. You can find that setting next to the minutes just below the video screen (or next to the clock icon)

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.
