AZ Grand Canyon

July 1998 and 1965

Delta escape weekend. Fly in at 8:30 pm. Drive 2 hours to Flagstaff for the night. Drive to Grand Canyon in the morning. Ron did an all-day killer hike. I took the West Rim Shuttle and got off at all eight stops, hiked the Hermit Trail for an hour, then took the East Rim Shuttle and hiked the South Kaibab Trail to Cedar Ridge. What a wonderful day. Sunday we saw the IMAX movie and Visitor Center show, and the Baby Grand Canyon.

110 degrees in Phoenix, 88 at the Canyon. Perfect.
