We hiked the AZT Grand Canyon corridor for the AZT in a Day Event on Saturday. Hiked South Kaibab and then North Kaibab trails reserving one of the cabins on the North Rim. It was also peak season for trail runners and probably hikers as well so we encountered lots of people on the trail the whole way. The weather was questionable Saturday and Sunday and sure enough once we reached the North Rim the rain, hail, thunder and lighting let loose. Fortunately, we just had to make it to North Rim Lodge from North Kaibab Trail in the really bad weather. But we were glad to have the cabin to dry out and sleep out of the elements.

Next morning, we arranged the shuttle to the trailhead so we didn’t have to hike from the lodge again and in the morning the rain had turned to snow. However, it was just above freezing so none of the snow was sticking. The trail was slick on the top part but once we dropped into the canyon the rain/snow stopped with only sporadic sprinkles. Fairly uneventful hike back with again lots of people but the last few hours was interesting. Weather moved in again but it made for some dramatic clouds, light, and even a rainbow hiking the last 2 miles out of the canyon. Once back at the top we headed to Tusayan for Mexican food and a beverage at Plaza Bonita!
