Grand Weather at the Canyon

Sixty-five mph winds blew us straight to Plan B during a spring hiking trip. No matter. We were in the land of Plans A to Z: Arizona.

The Grand Canyon was having a weather event. Hail. High winds. While wind chill can be battled, teetering in gusts along elevated edges as high as a mile seemed a dubious ambition. So, we did a little rearranging of the itinerary and drove in to the Canyon a few slightly warmer days later.

Our first peek of the Canyon this time was hit and miss between heavy fog and hail. Our second venture allowed us to hike partway down the South Kabib Trail. Which only whetted the hiking appetite for doing the whole deal next time with a little less wind and a little more warm.
