Hiking the Grand Canyon in June ’09


For those of you who are interested, I will be hiking through the Grand Canyon this June with my girlfriend, my buddy and his wife.  The four of us will be hiking from the North Rim –> South Rim –> North Rim.  Some people refer to this as the rim-to-rim-to-rim hike.

This will be my second time hiking through the Grand Canyon and I can’t wait.  I’m planning on writing another post about what you need to do in order to hike through the Grand Canyon – e.g, logistics of getting a backcountry permit, time of year to go, gear, etc.  So, if you’re interested in this info, leave a comment along with any questions you may have!

      Will do! In the meantime, feel free to post any questions you may have.

      FYI, you can purchase de-hydrated food at the South Rim General Store (they carry Mountain House – the best dehydrated food IMO). That said, when I was there two years ago, they only had two flavors/meals (eg, chicken with rice) and only about four in-stock. I called the General Store 3 weeks ago and they guy said they have a lot of flavors/meals with more than enough quantity in-stock. My point is: I wouldn’t count on restocking your meals at the General Store for your return hike.
