The North Rim        

Are we there yet?

 

If you've hiked down from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, you know that words cannot describe its immense beauty, its backcountry remoteness, its timeless tranquility.  Last year, about 4 million people visited the South Rim.  About 400,000 made it to the opposite side.  Less than 1% hike it rim-to-rim through Phantom Ranch.

 

Hiking the North Rim to Phantom Ranch, the rest of the world melts away, leaving you free for the important things in life: the freedom to just BE.  One foot in front of the other.  No thoughts—just to be.  Trying to take it all in and hike at the same time, without tripping—don't want to miss anything, you know.  Stops along the way are many—Roaring Springs, Ribbon Falls, Cottonwood Campground, numerous toe-checks, moleskin repairs and sock corrections.

 

 

One thing's for sure.  When God finished creating the World, he surely must have taken a long rest, somewhere between the North Rim and the South Rim, and smiled.

Here we go - Deborah, Larry, Julie and our trail-runner, Dave.
