Full disclosure, I forgot the theme this month so I kind of backed into it. Let's see how this goes. :)
I had the opportunity to backpack from the North Rim to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. We were originally just going to camp South Rim and do some day hikes but things fell in place and thanks to some awesome people we were able to secure a Bright Angel backcounty pass on very short notice. The canyon floor feels somewhat otherworldly. This was at our camp site at Bright Angel after the sun had gone beyond the canyon walls.
Climbing out of the canyon actually proved to be slightly easier. We were in the shade most of the day and there are plenty of rest stops. Still, it was probably the most difficult backpacking trip to date. This is shortly after we crossed the Colorado River via the Silver Bridge you see below.
After the trip to the Grand Canyon, I had a work trip to Boston. My wife had never been so she came along. I was busy so she did all the site seeing, but we did get to share a nice meal followed by a chocolate martini at Max Brenner's.
A little mid morning pick-me-up between meetings in Boston.
One of our Boston meetings had a fantastic view. I believe that is MIT across the river.
That's five photos, they all contain liquid! I hope to do a little better next month!!!
