The drive out to Grand Canyon was about 4 hours, and i was nearly falling asleep, until this GIANT deer almost ran in front of me. I narrowly avoided a big issue, and was awake for the remaining part of the drive. Checked into the grand canyon lodge and got a look of astonishment that we didn't want a wake up call at 7am for hiking....9:30 was fine for us.
So we took our time sleeping in and getting breakfast and provisions for hiking. We finally started the Bright Angel Trail around 1pm. the altitude is pretty serious, and it was a serious 6 mile hike. I suspect i had heat exhaustion, as I didn't feel right and needed a nap. We went and watched the sunset at the most popular spot, and I kept calling every bird a condor (not really a nature buff, I just like strange rocks). Then we had a lovely dinner at the somewhat fancy restaurant in the park. I liked the hot salsa.
