Journey To the River

A few years ago, I drove up to the Grand Canyon from Tucson to meet up with my dad, my brother-in-law, and my two nephews... They all came in from Chicago.

We were only there for a couple days, and it was a very pleasant reunion for "the guys..."  We did some easy hiking around the south rim of the canyon, took a jeep tour, and began walking down Bright Angel Trail for about 45 minutes one afternoon.  We turned around and came back up for ice cream... We were certainly not the most rugged bunch, though we were very happy to be together.

As a younger man, I'd done a good deal of intense hiking, camping, and backpacking, and I was starting to yearn for a bit more adventure while in/at the Canyon...
