Looked good on paper! I thought it would be nice to knock off a couple trails I hadn't done at the Grand Canyon. I didn't plan on the 150 Temps ;) . LP agreed to go along and do some tourist stuff too. We did the Rim Trail first to miss most of the tourist Some great views. With the temps we should have saved the easy for last. We hiked to Dripping Springs next then went up and down Waldron before exiting up Hermit. I enjoyed all the trails but I really needed LP as my motivational hiking partner to get me up that last mile and a half. The ice cream from Hermits Rest chased with a cold coke was so so good!
After the hike we took the shuttle back to the car then went and hit Tusayan Ruins and Shoshone point. Shoshone point had some great views and the friend LP made at the Ruins was funny.
We saw some great views and got a great hike in and cramps to go with it. Including the drive we saw Deer,Elk,Antelope,cool birds, and cool lizards. We also got to see the biggest Meteor I'll probably ever see. It lit up our whole car like someone was shinning a flood light on us. We looked up just in time to see it and the tail burning out. Very Cool! Thanks for everything LP, great trip! :y:
