! The weather was amazing and that allowed us to have a fast pace that got us down and up the canyon faster than ever before.
But this trip was special since this hike was my 10th time heading down the canyon! And every single time, it gets better and better!
November was the perfect time to head to the canyon for many reasons but my two favorites are because the weather is usually amazing! It was 77 degrees at Phantom Ranch and about 40 degree at night. That was a bit chilly but I would take that any day!
My second reason is because the canyon it’s less crowded! We were able to enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with having no one around during the hike. And when we work up Sunday morning to hike out of the canyon via Bright Angel Trail, there’s was no sign of any other human around! We were the only people on planet earth at that giving time hiking out of the canyon! It was surreal and an amazing feeling!
