Hiking the Grand Canyon

The place is ineffably beautiful! If words thus are inadequate, I shall say no more.

"Nearly everybody, on taking a first look at the Grand Canyon, comes right out and admits its wonders are absolutely indescribable, and then proceeds to write anywhere from 2,000 to 50,000 words giving the full details . . . When the Creator made it, He failed to make a word to cover it."

- Irvin S. Cobb (1876 - 1944)

Want to hike the canyon? If you plan to camp you'll need a PERMIT from the Grand Canyon National Park Backcountry Office.

Here's another planning resource.

Or visit the National Park Service website to download maps.
