JJ started from the south and I started almost 4hrs later from the north. We did not follow the hide-a-key wisdom, instead electing the fob-for-all approach.

Aspens were lighting up the Kaibab plateau in foliage color. A third to half of the plateau is toast but a healthy dose of medium aspen are scattered through the burn. Foliage seekers or end of rim season'rs had the area packed. A few maples were in the mix, very few.

Several mule trains in the first mile. I passed jj at 5.3 miles down. The creek between the bridges on North Kaibab still holds up as one of my favorite sections of trail anywhere.

Jonny Mogul steps on the South Kaibab are pretty much as I recall.

Fauna
5-year-old rattlesnake on the trail, one duck in the creek, an elephant on my back

Synopsis
Held 3.2mph to the river jogging the flats. I still love the mean ascent of the South Kaibab. Gave it my all, just average. Unlikely an R3 is in my future but never say never. Still great to get back on the N & S Kaibab after an eight-year absence. Jeneve is serious about conserving water.

None on the hike. The North rim was blazing bright aspen and maple colors.
