Canyon Chuck (2000)

Rim-to-Rim in the Grand Canyon

Canyon Chuck in June 2000, before his third TransCanyon hike.

 

North Kaibab Trail from the south rim, looking north.  
The trail is at the bottom of the canyon at the center of the picture, on the other side of the Colorado River, 7 miles away via the South Kaibab Trail.  The North Kaibab Trail then runs along along the Bright Angel Creek in the Bright Angel Canyon, for another 14 miles.  (See map.)
