Bright Angel Trail

Near the bottom

On day 5, we arrived at Phantom Ranch, where 8 out of 13 passengers disembarked - the rest rafted through the rest of the Canyon, all the way to Lake Mead. We spent the night in rustic cabins, and hiked out the next day.

This was taken around 7AM, near the bottom. We started early to avoid the heat - the trail is about 9.7 miles, and rises about 4700 feet.
