We are planning on going to the Grand Canyon in the beginning of August this year.
My initial plan was to head off from the south Rim, going down the Bright Angel trail (or possibly the South Kaibab trail) (starting off in the afternoon to experience the sunset) to the bottom of the canyon, sleeping over at the Phantom Ranch. Then start up very early in the morning (5 or 6am) to go up again the Bright Angel Trail watching the sun rise. Furthermore, I thought it would be best to rest at the Indian Garden for a while and go up the last bit late afternoon.
We will be three; me and my two boys, aged 11 and 15. Coming from Norway, we are pretty used to walking in the mountains; steep hills and challenging trails. But naturally, we are not that used to the heat :)
Are there anyone who has done the same/have any experiences doing this trip with kids and have recommodations to be shared, I would truly appreciate it!
Kind regards, Tine :)
