|One of the best trips of my life. I had always wanted to visit the grand canyon and hike it, but I've heard so many stories about how challenging it is that I was actually getting a bit of an unreasonable fear about the whole thing. So I was thrilled when Rob and Mark invited me to go on their trip in December.
