Adventure Time: Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim

Eyes on a New Adventure

Now that I have completed a thru-hike of the John Muir Trail, it’s time to turn my attention to other adventures, namely, a Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim run.

This is a slightly crazy undertaking from the top of one side of the Grand Canyon, down into the canyon, up the other side, then back again. In all, it’s a run of about 50 miles (give or take, depending if you run the South Kaibab trail or Bright Angel trail.

I first discovered there was such a thing at Davy Crockett’s blog (you, too, can read his detailed re-telling of the adventure).

Here’s a little of what it looks like from Krissy Moehl and Devon Crosby-Helms (they did it in 9 hours and 12 minutes, significantly faster than I’d be able to do it).

Fortunately, planning this sort of adventure will be a lot easier now that Google has photographed the trail on Google Maps.
