Yeah, this is the place. If you can make the trip, find a way to get it done! There is nothing like being inside the canyon to appreciate how really, really big the canyon is. And the views are splendid.

The inner canyon is where the real beauty lies. To really experience the GCNP you have to put on your boots and your backpack. Get a little dirt under your nails. I don't know why but it seems the effort you put in to hike...More
