Outside the Gym – Grand Canyon Day 2

Our Rim to Rim to Rim journey, in the Grand Canyon was planned in a civilized fashion to enjoy one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world. Day One found us happy healthy and enjoying, food, wine, napping and a gorgeous sunset on the North Rim. Day Two began much like day one with an early shuttle and a long cool descent into the Canyon. After 14 miles we found ourselves back at the glorious ad powerful Colorado River. Our plan was to ascend the Bright Angel Trail back to our lodging on the South Rim. It’s spectacular way to go to see even more of the Canyon. After filling and I mean filling our belly’s at the canyon floor we once again began the journey up and found ourselves smiling and soaking in the beauty of the GC all the way to the Rim. The second day was 24 miles, 6000 vert feet down and 4500 up, and about the same time as day one 6:34. Day one had been 22 miles same vert in reverse. Two incredible back to back days, 46 miles, 21,000 vertical. And I’d do it again!
