Grand Canyon



Visited Grand Canyon the second time, first time was a camping trip. We hiked down to the bottom and camp there, it was SO hot down there, I remember it was a summer end, and it's still above 90 degrees Fahrenheit at night, I couldn't sleep because it was too hot, and we have 3 person squeezed into a 2-person tent (wrong estimation because we measured without the sleeping bag), it was so pack in there that our hands were touching each others' and I could hardly make a turn !

One of the guys who did more study for this trip kept mentioning how dangerous a rattlesnack can be, so when there's really one approaching our tent, we were scared to hell, and we dare not go out of the tent until the next morning ...

Second day, hiked up to Bright Angel Trail, about half way back to the top, and camp there for another night, it was so creepy hearing many rattlesnack through out the night, I felt like I didn't sleep the whole time.

Finally, we went back to the top on the 3rd day, it was such a wonderful experience ... I'll have to look for the pictures and scan them in order to post it here, but I think this is not going to be accomplished any time soon, cos I have trouble locating my stuff after moved back from the States as well as Singapore.
