Wish You Were Here: Hello from the Bottom of the Grand Canyon

June 13, 2014 at 2:42 PM | by | Comments (0)

We're down there... somewhere.

Most people only see the Grand Canyon from above, looking out from a viewing platform on the South Rim near the visitor center. For those that need a reminder of its "grandness," the canyon is 277 "river miles" long, one mile deep, and 18 miles at its widest point.

It's an amazing sight, for sure, one of which we need a much closer look. This weekend, we're headed off on a multi-day backpacking trip to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, making our way to Havasupai Falls, about an 11-mile hike from the top of the canyon.

Is this the best oasis in the world? We'll return to civilization next week with lots of photos, info, and inspiration for a trip of your own, but for now, have a great weekend, and wish you were here!
