The Grand Canyon was a life changer for me. At the time of my first rim-rim, I was heavy and overwhelmed by the mileage. Once complete however, I found a new sense of my own strength and a growing awe for the grandeur of the world. The South Kaibab trail is a 7 mile trek down to the Colorado River, the body of water responsible for carving the deep gash on Earth. It’s half of the hike, it’s sister this day being the Bright Angel trail which takes us back to the top of the South Rim. I’ve almost lost count how many times I’ve hiked this trail by this point, my love for it is seemingly inexhaustible. Mitsy came along too!
