On my way to Vegas, took a side trip up to the Grand Canyon National Park (GC). This was my second visit to the GC, but on this trip, I used the shuttle buses to get around. I got some pics of the Bright Angel Trail, too, which I wasn’t expecting. If I ever get to backpack the GC, for that first trip, I would probably hike down into the canyon on the South Kaibab Trail and use the Bright Angel Trail to hike up and out. That hole in the ground is impressive and about a mile deep and, as I understand, it takes a day to hike down to the Colorado River and 2-3 days to hike back out. Entry to the park is $25/per car, but my Senior Pass got me in free.
