Today is going to be a busy one. We were at the South Kaibab trailhead by 9:30 with our backpacks filled. Snack foods, lots of water, and extra jackets for the possible cold. Yesterday as we were looking over the rim, we noticed a mule train winding its way up from the floor below. It was coming up South Kaibab trail. Today Louise and I are heading down that same trail. As we leave the rim, we are on a narrow, steep path that will traverse back and forth until we are over 700 feet below were we started. Trekking the 3 ½ hours of Kaibab was a real treat. The views and fresh air, the hike in its self really made it a great day. After the decent and then the long hike to the top, we knew we had just finished a great morning of much needed exercise. Then it was back to the coach for lunch and when finished, back out to see the rest of the “South Rim”. There is a great free bus system here at Grand Canyon. Today we caught the blue bus from the campground and took it to the red bus line. From there we took in the west end of the South Rim. Our first stop was to the Maricopa Point. From there, we hiked the rim to the next 3 view points. Now it wasn’t that we couldn’t see the “view points” all along the trail, because we could, but the “view points” are locations that have printed material that tells you what you are, or can see below. For instance we could watch those camping at different locations below, or floating the Colorado River. After our morning hike, then adding this one, we are sure we will be sleeping good tonight.
