We started the 1st of April -2 C,*** snowfall with food for 4 days, tent and sleeping bags at an elevation gain of about 2000.
First day we hiked 1500 m down into the bottom of the Canyon to the Colorado River, about 25 C at the bottom.
Breakfast at our first camping. The squirrels liked our food 😀.
On the way to our second backcountry campground.
Shower in the morning. Amazing! So beautiful and cold!
The Vegetation changed drastically from top to the bottom.
Third day hiking one level higher almost flat. Patrick played the whole day with stones 😊. He also found some inner voices of Marion 😕.
In the afternoon a thunderstorm.
We arrived at our backcountry place soaking wet. The good news was that we found a great place to cook and camp, in a cave.
The difficult, long and exhausting hike up to Hermes Rest at the rim.
Sunset at south rim.
This was just amazing!
