jpamusher`s travel pix - 150 - Hiking the Rim Trail

Wesley was boarded in a kennel for the week that I was backpacking down inside the Canyon so to make things up to him we took a long hike along the rim trail the day after i got out of the Canyon. The rim trail runs 6 miles along the Canyon Rim from Grand Canyon Village out to Hermit`s Rest. We hiked out and back.

in this photo,we were looking across at a dry wash on the North Rim side. No trails would lead here,the only access would be via boat from the Colorado river. Imagine beaching a raft or kayak here and hiking up it. Total seclusion! :)

perhaps not as scary as the fiscal cliff :) but it was an impressive sight as we hiked along the rim.
