Hike Up The Bright Angel Trail

GRAND CANYON, AZ – The trip culminated with the big hike up the Bright Angel Trail: 7.5 miles long and about a mile up in elevation, with the last 4 miles being steep switchbacks. Carrying a large heavy backpack with temperatures approaching 100 degrees, I completed the hike in just under 8 and a half hours. It was an incredible feeling of accomplishment after making it to the top, and I was rewarded with some shots of a spectacular high desert monsoon on the ride back to Flagstaff.
