Christmas in the Grand Canyon staying at Phantom Ranch in the cabins. We started from Bright Angel TH hoping to hike in the snow but it didn't start until afternoon and by then we were too low for snow. At Indian Gardens we decided to take Tonto Trail east across to South Kaibab for something a bit different. Then down to Phantom Ranch with a steady but light rain.

Next day we headed up North Kaibab Trail to Ribbon Falls and Upper Ribbon Falls

Chilly day but the storm had moved through and it started to clear up. Arrived back at Phantom Ranch for a beverage before dinner.

Last day we packed up and headed out the River Trail and up Bright Angel. Part way up we hopped on the Old Bright Angel Trail but had trouble fining the start and ended up skipping the first 1/4 mile of it which looked very steep from above. The rest of Old Bright Angel was decent and easy to follow for old trail. On top the trail came out on the Tonto near Indian Gardens. Short break there and continued up the trail looking at the snow left over from 2 days ago.

We finally started to see some snow just below 3 mile rest house. By the time we reached mile and half rest house the snow was several inches. The last mile and half up to the rim was great hike through the fresh snow. Nice to see everything with snow cap!
