Hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon

A test of our stamina...

Hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon was a bucket list item for Curt. We joined friends, Craig and Susie, and planned an amazing trip that included a stop at Arches National Park, Antelope Canyon, and Zion National Park which is home to Angel's Landing. Hiking from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to the Colorado river and back up the next day was a grueling test of our hiking abilities that we both passed and would do again!
