The Grand Canyon

We live 76 miles from this awe inpiring wonder.  Saturday we hiked it to Plateau Point.  Six miles down into the canyon to the point.  Six MILES back out.  The sign at Indian Gardens says... the first 6 miles are optional.  The second 6 are not.  (-:

To view the Grand Canyon from the rim is breathtaking.  To experience the canyon from within is soul touching. No matter how many people are in your group, it is a very personal experience.  Of course is is also breathtaking, literally, when you make the trek out of the canyon.  (-:

The top of the ridge farthest behind me is where we began our hike on Bright Angel trail

Run when you can
Walk if you need
Crawl if you must
Just never give up!
