Recently, Mark and I enjoyed a much-needed respite from normal life at the Grand Canyon!
We ran/hiked 3 miles of the South Rim (1000 ft. elevation change) then drove to Lee’s Ferry.
We fly-fished the Colorado River—a first for me, Mark was a pro—
and I caught my first trout!
I held it fearlessly…
Then we drove to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and stayed in a cabin at Jacob Lake Inn.
On our last day, we ran a 10 mile trail along the North Rim with the beauty of the Grand Canyon canvassed over the rim. Here is Mark on the trail…
My consistent thought in viewing the canyon was that I literally did not have the ability to embrace the fullness of the beauty I was seeing, just as my eyes couldn’t get a grasp of the depth of the canyon.
What a fun trip! I’m glad Mark and I love the outdoors together—to run, hike, fish, hug trees, eat granola…the whole gamut.
