USA Recap Part IV: Hiking in the Grand Canyon

We camped for the night nearby the Canyon and the next morning, we all headed back to the South Rim with plans hike down on the Bright Angel trail. We ended up hiking down about two miles or so- with no problems, other than the rising temperature- but on the hike back up again, I had a seriously bad panic attack (I think due to the altitude). Being stuck practically on the edge of a cliff in the middle of the day with searing hot temperatures and no energy to keep moving, I was pretty worried.. but the group that I walked down with were so lovely and encouraging, and some other groups joined in helping too- huge thanks to the guy that gave me his entire packet of potassium shots, although you probably aren't reading this!

Once we reached the top again, we walked around the visitor centres and then headed back to our campsite for an evening of s'mores, open air showers and freezing cold 1am "need more blankets" tent banter. The next day we left the Canyon to head to Vegas, driving along the iconic Route 66. We stopped off at Seligman, a seriously small madcap town- definitely recommend stopping off there despite the ridiculous heat!












So there you have the fourth instalment of this travel-related series. We're kind of approaching the halfway point but the next week or so was my absolute favourite so I guess you're all going to have to watch this space once more (psst.. I've got Vegas next- it was incredible). See you then!
