The GPS log of our hike
We started at the North Kaibab Trailhead at 3 am. Follow our progress.....
A chronology of our adventure hiking the Grand Canyon from rim to rim.
Sunrise from the canyon floor near the Pump House Ranger Station and Manzanita Creek.
Looking south on the canyon floor.
Just starting to get a glimpse of our goal at the south rim... Still a long way to hike.
Another spectacular view, something you just can't see from the rim.
A pink rattler, relative to the western diamondback and only found in the Grand Canyon.
How spectacular is this?
Progressing towards "The Box" and the Colorado River.
We're in "The Box", the hottest section of the hike. Luckily, it's still below 100 degrees when we passed through.
Deep inside "The Box".
We finally made it through "The Box" and into Phantom Ranch. We've hiked almost 14 miles at this point and It's over 115 degrees.
Crossing the Colorado River on the silver bridge.
Looking back to the silver (near) and black (far) bridges.
The Colorado, looking west (down stream).
The Devils Corkscrew. Yes, it's every bit as steep as it looks. That's the south rim above it, still a long way to go.
View from the top of the Devils Corkscrew, looking back to the north rim.
Approaching Indian Gardens, looking back to the North Rim.
Finally approaching the South Rim after an unexpected and cold night in the 1.5 mile rest house.
