This hike was the first day of a 2-day rim-cubed hike. We started from the South Kaibob TH, hiked down to the Colorado River and Phamtom Ranch, and then went up the North Kaibab TH to the North Rim.

It was a great day for a hike. We started at 4:45, and were past "the box" before the weather got very warm.

I saw my first rattlesnake of the year -- I think that it was a Grand Canyon pink rattlesnake, although it could have been a hopi rattlesnake. ( [ photo ] )

As for mileage and elevation gain, I recorded 21.0 miles and 6,109 feet of elevation gain from the South Kaibab TH to the North Kaibab TH. When I got to the NK trailhead, I had to hike another 2.2 miles with 174 feet of elevation gain to the Lodge at the North Rim, which was where I spent the night. I included this segment in the mileage/elevation totals for the hike, which made the hike 23.2 miles and 6,283 feet of elevation gain.
