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.
