Water along the Way

This past September, a few co-workers and I took our days off to go on a hiking trip.  A rim-to-rim trip to be exact.  This was my first time going on a hike this long ( it took us a full day!), but I enjoyed all of the views along the way.  The water that flowed into little streams, waterfalls, and rivers made the trip much more enjoyable.

Since we lived on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, we headed down on our side of the canyon and hiked back up on the South Rim’s side, approximately 24 miles total!

The photos below are ones I took of the different water views along our hike.  Just to our luck, we found a hidden beach on the last half of our journey.  It made for a great resting spot alongside the Colorado River.

I would definitely recommend this hike to anyone out there who is an avid hiker, or a beginner like myself.

Enjoy!
