Grand Canyon Day 3

We woke up at 6:00 and decided to take the Transept Trail to Bright Angel Point for sunrise. The spot is only a quarter-mile from the lodge so we knew it might be crowded. As we passed the lodge, the smell of bacon was drifting through the air and our empty stomachs...

My alarm went off at 6:00 AM and I got up slowly. My legs felt strange. At first I couldn’t place the feeling, but then I realized they were a little sore. Only 11 days after finishing the PCT and my legs are sore from a 7 mile hike. Granted we dropped over...

Day 146: Oh, Canada!

Mile 2638.7 – 2650 + 8 miles in Manning Provincial Park. The mountains were black silhouettes against a horizon of deep red. Lifeless clouds slowly gained definition as the sun, still hidden, rose toward the horizon. As it broke the horizon, rays of light fell...
