The Grand Canyon. We are all packed up and ready to start our backpack. We've chosen to hike down from Hermit's rest to a place called Granite Rapids on the Colorado river. We plan to spend the entire first day hiking down. Then, we'll set up camp and take it easy the next day, loafing around down at the Colorado river. On the third day, we'll hike back up. With lots of weight and elevation change to cover, some of us are a bit apprehensive!
