Daniela & I got started around 6:30am, and headed down South Kaibab. It was cold and windy at the top, but the wind mostly died down once we got below the rim. Of course, we got started we hordes of other hikers, but everyone quickly spread out at their own pace. Not too far down, I suddenly heard Daniela speaking Slovak with a couple of guys--one was Slovak, the other Czech--and then a little while later, she chatted with a couple from Czech, so Eastern Europe was well represented on the hike. We stopped for a few picture breaks along the way, but made good time down to the river.

At the bottom, we headed over to Phantom Ranch for a snack break, then made our way west on the River trail, then up Bright Angel. We headed over to Plateau Point, where we had another snack break, and relaxed for a while. Then made our way--slowly--up Bright Angel. I could definitely feel that I had been sick all last week. Temps were comfortable all day, and there wasn't too much wind to deal with. Even though I've never been particularly enamored with the Canyon, it was a fun day.

A good variety of wildflowers, and there was an abundance of brittlebush.
