Zigs and zags...

                      Of a small part of the 'Bright Angel' trail, heading 4380ft down from the South rim of the Grand canyon to the Colorado river, averaging a 10% grade, trail difficulty....Strenuous, What part I've done, I would agree :-)

If you saw Fridays post, this is the continuation of the trail.

Shows the trail off well, Frank.

[In 1983 I had an hour to spare so spent 15 minutes strolling a way down this...or a similar...trail, then 45 minutes struggling back up. It certainly reinforced the depth of the Canyon! My strongest recollection, though, was that is smelled very strongly of donkey/mule/pony, as the trail was dominated by treks on those beasts of burden.]
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray, another obstacle, depending on the time of day, Mule poo!
Terrific shot, Frank! You did a great job of balancing the light!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, it wasn't too bad to do.

Everything about this says STEEP Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Put b****y in front of that, Chris. smile
That is a daunting sight Frank
Frank L Croston.: It is Bill, partly because the hard part is getting out, not in, it's the opposite of all the walking I've done.
i assume they have criteria to grade the difficulty levels but i have no clue what. a nice vantage point, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: They have a sign at the top telling you that even fit people die down here...That tells you all you need to know, Ayush. smile Thanks.

Attention de ne pas louper les virages...
Frank L Croston.: Maybe going down fast, but certainly not coming up!
I just can't imagine ever trying to walk back up that trail.
Frank L Croston.: Its the only way out, Brian...Unless you want the ignominy of being carried out on a mule! smile
It looks so well kept, even from this distance.
Frank L Croston.: It is pretty good considering the use,including Mules.
A fine, if hair-raising, perspective...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Larry.
