There are some things you only need to do once in your life, and yesterday’s Grand Canyon R2R hike was one of those events for me. I’m so glad I challenged myself as I did, but I don’t mind admitting that was one tough hike! I made it in 13.5 hours, slightly over my 13-hour estimated time to complete, but had I not stopped to shoot over 400 pictures with my Smartphone(!!), I’m pretty sure that I would have come in at least 30 minutes sooner. But to reiterate, there will not be another attempt to shave off time from my mark.
I’m going to save the rest of my story for another day. I’ll also share a few of the photos I took along my journey. For now, I think that I’ll take a nap.
