Southwest Vacation Day 7: Grand Canyon Bright Angel Trail and Sunset

June 13, 2012

We did the Bright Angel trail down to Indian Gardens. It’s a 9.2 mile round-trip hike and has an elevation change of 3,050 feet.

At the 3 mile rest house on our way down we encountered a mule deer looking for water. It did not really care that we were less than 10 feet away.

Later that night we went to Yavapai Point to see the sunset:

None of the pictures I took of the actual sunset really turned out on account of me not knowing I should have adjusted the white balance. This is possibly one of the better ones:
