Visitor from Texas in Town so did the usual site seeing things. Snowed on the way up to the canyon and the next two days were clear but the temperatures never got above 34 degrees. Took the Rim Trail to Hermit rest but only got to The Abyss where we turned around. The trail was really icy in spots making it difficult to walk. Took the road in some areas. I really need to invest in a set of crampons for this type of hiking. The weather made for great views of the canyon. This was the emptiest I have seen this place in well over 40 years, not sure if it was because of the long weekend just prior to getting here or if it was the weather reports showing highs in the low 30's. Either way it was a great trip. This is not a trail you pick when you're looking for a "real hike" but a really nice trail if you are showing someone the canyon. I have been on this trail many times the first with my wife when we first got married then after that every time a relative came out from back east to visit.
