Grand Canyon Hike Oct 2014 - North Kaibab Trail and Bright Angel Trail - Series 1

Grand Canyon Hike Oct 2014

My friend, Dave Carnochan, hiked the North Kaibab Trail and the Bright Angel Trail, about 28 miles round trip, in the Grand Canyon in October.
He has shared a number of the photos he took and granted me permission to display them on the blog.
He even spotted a California Condor.
The hike took 6 days, the temps ranged from 27F (-2.7C) to 65F (18.3C) overnight and ranged from 65F (18.3C) to 90F (32C) during the day.

Difficult to judge the height of this monstrosity by the photo, but, I would estimate it being several hundred feet in height.
