Hiking the Grand Canyon
This podcast will ensure you have a great experience you'll want to repeat instead of one you'll want to forget. I hiked the Canyon with a group over Spring Break 2007 and had a fabulous trip because we saw this on DVD and went prepared. So, pay attention to the preparation and training tips. We're going to do it again; a North Rim to South Rim (21 miles) excursion is next.
Going to the South Rim in April and this has been a huge help in preparation and what to expect! Looking forward to more posts!
Great source of info on the conditions of the trails.
