So we woke up and hand a healthy breakfast. I love breakfast. Then we went to the general store to buy provisions for hiking. This is only mentionable because the clerk seemed either high or alien. It was pretty funny having a conversation with him. Then we went to the park, and started hiking the Bright Angel Trail. The altitude. Wow. Went down 3 miles, coming back up was a serious work out. Serious. Altitude training is serious. Then I felt like i was going to die without serious sleep and electrolytes. After a nap, went to dinner and a gorgeous sunset.

Next morning headed off to look at other parts of the park. Amazingly we saw snow on one cliff in the shade. We saw some art and other views from the other end of the Canyon. Then we headed off to Sonoma.
