hiking down

For a person used to climbing mountains it was quite an experience to hike down for a change. It was easy for sure, but we couldn't stop thinking of the necessity to climb back up! Did not make it all the way to the Colorado River, as it's a near impossible endeavour to go down and back up in one day. The trek across the Canyon ("rim to rim") usually takes three days.
Have a look at what's hidden beneath the horizon.
