"Leave it as it is. You cannot improve on it. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it. What you can do is to keep it for your children, and for all who come after you, as the one great sight which every American... should see."
On any hike during Psycho Season (AKA Springtime), one must be aware of extreme weather fickleness.
Brad and I descended into the Canyon and met summer. We sought shade like Bedouins in the desert. A cold front blew through two days later. We then sat in the wimpy sunshine like snowbirds at Miami Beach. Last night, a chilly rain assaulted us at Tanner Beach. White Death struck at temporarily misnamed Desert View tower and the rest of the South Rim. Barley the Van was coated with the evil White stuff too.
It wasn't a comfortable hike out. However it was a great journey. After all, it's the Grand freakin' Canyon!
I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
