From there we drove to Marble Canyon and Lee's Ferry. Lee's Ferry is the spot that several years ago we got on a raft with Jerri and Patti Brecke and other's and rafted 185 miles of the Grand Canyon. We stayed the night before the rafting trip in Marble Canyon. So that was kind of fun to go back and see the area again. From there we went to the Grand Canyon and did a lot of sight seeing on the way and got a hotel about a 1/4 of a mile from the Bright Angel Trailhead.
Tomorrow we plan on doing the 12 mile hike (round trip) to Plateau Point and then back up Bright Angel Trail. That will be 4-1/2 miles of switchbacks going down to Indian Garden and then another 1-1/2 miles to Plateau Point. We hope to have lunch there and then head back up the Bright Angel Trail.
I am sure we will be tired tomorrow night!
Life is good!
