My friends Bob, Glen and I left Mesa on Monday afternoon and spent the night at a motel in Tusayan. We wanted to get an early start on Tuesday morning, so arrived at Bright Angel Lodging before 7 a.m. We planned to hike down the South Kaibab and return on the Bright Angel trail after spending the night at the Phantom Ranch. We had hoped to park at Bright Angel Lodging area and bus to the South Kaibab trail head, then we would be close to our vehicle when we returned. We had to check in at the Bright Angel Lodge and missed the 7 and 7:15 bus that would take us to the South Kaibab trail head. We waited 30 minutes for the next bus, so didn't get on the trail until 8:30. It was quite windy, but enjoyed the hike down meeting a variety of folks coming up from the ranch. A mule train was loading gravel to fill in washed out areas of the trail. That was interesting to watch. We did some meandering and taking in the sights on the way down. We saw no wildlife until we arrived at the ranch. We knew rain and snow were in the forecast for the next day.
