|We started hiking our 11 mile trek at 4:30 AM,
…when my shirt buttoning skills were not the best.
|About 1/2 way down. The Grand Canyon is
about a mile deep, and the temperature goes
up by 3 degrees Farenheit for each 1,000 ft.
When we started in the morning, it was 45
degrees on the rim. By the time we got to the
bottom it was a toasty 105 degrees.
|Sunrise just around the corner
on Bright Angel Trail.
