I always thought the Grand Canyon is one of those places where you drive for hours, then you're presented with the canyon, take pictures then after an hour, you drive back. Driving for 8 hrs or more roundtrip to only spend an hour at this place made me think otherwise to make this trip. Until I found out that you can actually hike it.
It's almost a year since we trekked down the South Kaibab trail and then up Bright Angel trail all in 1 day. Seriously considering planning a trip Rim to Rim to Rim (42 miles - South to North to South) in the future.
