Grand Canyon in 27 Pictures

On Sunday morning I climbed out of the Grand Canyon on the South Bass Trail.  It was a tough trip and we set up camp in the dark all three nights.  I'll tell you the stories about the trip but for now I have to get ready for Ragnar in Central Florida this weekend and need time to pack and put together the blog for the 4 day Grand Canyon trip.

In the meantime, I leave you with a 27 picture collage.  Why ONLY 27 pictures you ask?  I almost didn't have a camera and bought a disposable camera and guffed at having ONLY 27 pictures.  It is inconceivable to limit myself to 27 pictures over 4 days.  It became one of the running jokes (or is that hiking jokes?).  As it turned out, Scott lost his camera (just one of many things lost along the trip) and needed the mere 27 exposure camera.  I on the other hand took well over 200 pictures but have narrowed it down to just 27 pictures.  Next week I'll post a trip report for out latest Grand Canyon trip where we hiked 3 hours in the dark, fretted over a possible broken nose and sprained ankle (not mine thank goodness (that puts a huge damper in running)), rappelled 20 feet and had to pump water from a green sludge puddle.

What a beautiful photos of the Grand Canyon! Thanks for sharing the photos of that special part of the world.

I look forward to reading your Grand Canyon trip report and your hiking in the dark! In the meanwhile, I'm running in the dark :)
