|South Kaibab Trailhead
|The canyon slowing coming to life. Our first crossing of the Colorado River.
|Bright Angel Canyon
|Low hanging clouds cover the tops of the canyon
|Looking back at the south rim far off in the distance
|Starting our climb up the north rim. Rain just starting.
|Bridge crossing near Supai Tunnel
|Winter wonderland of the north rim
|Pretending not to be cold on the north rim. Halfway home!
|Descending the north rim. So much green!
|And back into the sunshine
|Looking down Bright Angel Canyon. South rim way in the distance.
|Second crossing of the Colorado River after Phantom Ranch
|The switchbacks of the Bright Angel trail snaking up the canyon
|This just made us laugh
|Slowly making our way up the south rim

The following morning we returned to the south rim to gazed at this amazing place. For me, it was the first time I saw the Grand Canyon from this perspective. This place is massive and utterly gorgeous. Had I seen this view of the canyon before I decided to run R2R2R, I would have been way more scared. Ignorance is definitely bliss.
|So glad I saw this view after the run
