Today marks the 25th anniversary of my Dads passing doing the Grand Canyon Rim 2 Rim 2 Rim. This year I decided somewhat last minute to go up and hike it again to commemorate his passing. I'm not currently trained up or conditioned to do a R2R2R so decided to just do Rim 2 Rim. I was able to talk Joe into going with me and we worked out a good plan. We drove up early this morning and I would go from South to North. Joe then drove around to the North Rim and would hike in the opposite direction. Then when I finished I came back and picked him up. We finished the hike with a Ceasar salad and a large pizza at Oregano's in Flagstaff and we were back in Phoenix by 10:30PM. Total miles driven was a little over 900 plus a Rim to Rim and back all in the same day. That makes for a full day.

As for the hike the weather was beautiful and there is some nice Fall color over on the North side. It was a bit of a slog coming out the last mile and a half but all in all just a great hike and solid day! Thanks for going and thanks for the assist with the car shuttle Joe. It worked out perfect!
