We took off from the South Kiabab trailhead at 8:00 a.m. Our plan was to make a day of it... take the South Kiabab trail 9 miles down to the bottom of the canyon, eat lunch on the Colorado River, then make the 9 mile trek back up 5,000 ft. using the Bright Angel trail.
I was absolutely overwhelmed with the grandeur and majesty of the Canyon...
If you look closely you can see our lunch destination at the bottom of the canyon: the Colorado River
