Grand Canyon Hike Photo: South rim from Bright Angel campground at Phantom Ranch

In April, Doug and Brian returned to the Grand Canyon. We day hiked out the West Rim trail from Grand Canyon Village to Hermit's Rest. We then did a 3 day, 2 night backpack down the Bright Angel and River trails, stayed at Bright Angel campground at Phantom Ranch, day hiked part way up the North Kaibab trail and, finally, backpacked up the South Kaibab trail to the south rim.

We don't have a full trip report, but you can view photos of the trip.

You can also view Doug's 3 video slideshows of the trip on YouTube: the West Rim Trail, the Bright Angel/River Trail and Phantom Ranch and the North and South Kaibab trails.
