1st trip
Spent 3 Days backpacking Grand Canyon via South Kaibab to Bright Angel Campgropund on Thursday morning. Very steep trail that I was not prepared for and over packed with close to 50 pounds. Took close to 7 hours to reach campsite. Rested that evening at Phantom Ranch with a couple beers. Friday morning headed out to Ribbon Falls up North Kaibab Trail. Great photos along the way (soon to come)and at the falls. Somewhat remote locate to reach falls so still in good condition and not abused by tourists. That added 12 miles to our excursion. Saturday morning packed up before sunrise and headed out over silver bridge and up Bright Angel. This was easier to me even though it was farther. I would rather use muscles on Bright Angel than joints on South Kaibab. It took us 12 hours breaking regularly but great scenery and photo ops. Totaled 29 miles in 30 hours over 3 days. This was an adventure of a lifetime and we are planning again for the same time of year cause the weather was perfect. South rim was high 78 and low of 45. Phantom Ranch was high 93 and low of 66. Mostly cloudy at bottom so the sun was not beating on us constantly. Loved the trip and met a lot of great people along the way.
