The first day, we decided to hike down into the canyon for a little bit. The kids didn't want to hike, and we had Brewster, so Hubby and I ditched the kids at the rim and walked down about a mile or so.
It was so beautiful!
We had a little slushy hail that kept the dust down. I expected the weather to lower people's spirits, but it was like a party! People were congratulating each other on how far they hiked, asked where they were from, and were so pleasant. I stopped and listened to the sounds, and I could hear laughter and happy greetings down the trail. We met a group of people from Canada and Thailand.
We also met a friend from San Jose! We had heard she was somewhere near us, but the Grand Canyon is a pretty big place. Our chances of finding each other were slim, since we didn't have each other's phone numbers.
Mr. I and Hubby walked below the rim the second day.
They had a great time!
Brewster did very well!
