Grand Canyon

April 2014
Me at the Welcome to Grand Canyon National Park sign

On my way to the start of the Pacific Crest Trail, I stopped at the Grand Canyon for a warm-up hike backpacking through its bottom. I took the Escalante Route and Tonto Trail from Desert View to Grand Canyon Village — about sixty miles inside the magnificent canyon. I wanted to go all the way through to Hermit’s Rest, but I applied for my permit too late and those campsites were already full.


View all the pretty pictures from my Grand Canyon trip.
