Grand Canyon Hike (and road trip)

We decided that since we were spending Thanksgiving down in Phoenix, we'd road trip it down there, stopping for a hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon on our way. The drive down took us through Moab and Monument Valley - all setting the stage for the canyon hike ahead. After spending a night (in a hotel) on the rim, we hiked down the South Kaibab trail to the bottom, spent a day resting down at the bottom in the Bright Angel campground, then hiked back out on day three via the Bright Angel trail back to the south rim. The hike was grueling both ways (probably more so going down than up) but it was absolutely beautiful! We lucked out on the weather - it was supposed to be in the mid-sixties in the canyon and forties on the rim - instead it was nearly 85 in the canyon and high sixties on the rim!
