|Grand Canyon R2R day hike
This is definitely a must do day hike!
We met on Friday after work and drove to South Rim.
We camped at the South Rim. On Saturday morning we met and started our hike at Bright Angel Trailhead at 6am. We descended to Colorado river via Indian Garden. We crossed the bridge and continued to North Rim. We rested and stopped at Phantom Ranch. Then continued via North Kaibab trail. We hiked up the North Kaibab trail and spent the night on the north rim.
