    I gotta say.

    I loved the trip up there. All the sights that I never even imagined seeing were... Breathtaking.
    I mean, sure, the pictures of everything can show you what we saw, but You'll never have the feeling that I had when I saw them first hand.

    We got to the Canyon, and I swear, when I looked at it, I cried.
    It was so beyond words that it actually made me cry.

    So, if you've never been to the Grand Canyon, I'm telling you, you HAVE to before you die. [Says Pawfoot ]


    The hike down there was a lot of fun. I mean, at first I was super excited about doing something that not many people ever do, but as we got closer and closer to the bottom, I was just excited for eating and resting. [at the Bottom of the Grand Canyon!!!]

    I have to say, I believe that now that I've been there and back, and survived...
    I don't think there's anything I can't do.


    [I'm not even going to talk about the trip out... It wouldn't be a pleasant report....]


    Anyways!
    I'm extremely happy that Dad and I took this trip.
    I loved seeing the sights, meeting the people, and most of all, I loved spending time with my dad


    Thats All for now.
    ...Says Pawfoot, thats who!! [ Cuz thats how I roll ]
    and Coffins ARE used for transportation...

    Great Report. I especially liked the pictures of hanging from the car/stand, that's dedication to hanging!

    I know what you mean about the legs hurting, my bro and I had one day and wanted to get into the canyon. We started down the South Kaibab at 9AM, ate lunch at Phantom Ranch and popped back out at the top of the Bright Angel at about 6PM. We hurt for a week but got some great pics, memories and fun stories to tell for years to come.

    It is a definite must see and you must go down in, not just stay on the rim. It's a whole 'nother deal being down in it!

    A trip for another time... Havasu Falls, incredible water falls and great trees to hang from in the campground. I want to get back there again, now that I have a hammock.

    Sad that Phantom Ranch/Bright Angel Campground didnt have trees that you could hang from.
    Loved the Creek, spent most of the time in it soaking

    I'll never forget my 1st time there in 1970. Did that Bright Angel South Rim hike in one day, out the next about 1972 or 73. I agree with the idea stated earlier about something almost magical about the area. Coming up from the deserts near Phoenix at about 1100 feet, to Sedona at about 4000 ft but at the foot of the Mogollon Rim cliffs WAYYY up above you, then up through Oak Creek Canyon to the giant Ponderosa pines at 7000 ft approaching Flagstaff. Then on through the cool Aspen forests on the other side of Flagstaff, at the foot of Humphry's(SP?) peaks at 12,700 ft on the way to the Grand Finale: The Grand Canyon! Mind boggling! So beautiful in so many different ways. I may go there in early November with some luck.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Did you spend the night at the ranch, or campsite?
