After your long trek down the the Colorad River, afford yourself 2 days to relax and rest before heading back up up to the rim. It's tranquil down there and there a few day hikes down there to enjoy. You will be tired when you get down here to the Phantom Ranch. Why just get some sleep and head back up the next morning? It's too exhausting to get down there and hike back up the next morning. Most people do it this way and I can see the exhaustion written on their faces. It's a trip of a lifetime...savor it! There are family style dinners/breafasts and it's a perfect setting to share stories with fellow hikers from all over the world. Bring earplugs if you are staying in the dormitory style bunkhouses. On a unique note, you can buy postcards on the rim, bring them down to the Colorado River and have a red ink stamp stamped on your postcard that states...'Delivered by Mule from the bottom of the Grand Canyon'! And the mules will bring your postcard up from the bottom of the Grand Canyon...a unique postcard for your friends back home.....bring stamps just in case they run out of postage stamps.
