We had some friends in town from Kansas City who had never been to the Canyon before. After spending the morning in Flagstaff, we headed north and were able to pickup the last available campsite at Mather (more comfortable for the out-of-towners than forest road camping :( ).

We did a short stroll along the Rim Trail to Hopi Point in the afternoon. I had never been on this (mostly) paved trail before. I had tempered my expectations, knowing we would be walking between large tour groups and not have much solitude. I was wrong though. The views were, of course, amazing. And that overcame any problems I had with the lack of solitude. It doesn't really matter that you're on a paved highway with minimal elevation change because...you're at the frickin' GC.

The Rim Trail provides a walk along memory lane: from the first time ever visiting the canyon to the first long backpacking trip below the rim.
