Grand Canyon

What a place the Grand Canyon is. It was and is a place like I've never seen before. Each view was more beautiful than the last. We all had such great time running over the two days. We ran S-to-N (S. Kaibab-N. Kaibab) on Day 1, then N-to-S (N. Kaibab-Bright Angel) on Day 2. Words can't do it justice; neither will the pictures, but enjoy my feeble attempt.

The trip to the GC was worth every second of travel and every penny spent. Definitely something that should be on every ultrarunners' bucket list. Here is a good logistical review if you would want to plan your own adventure. . . you should!
