Browneye RR, day two

The next morning was glorious and I convinced a few hardy riders to hike out to the rim as I had seen the pix Joel and crew took last year, and I didn't want to miss it since we'd come all this way and braved all that trail.

They are so fussy about keeping the terrain unmolested that they have a trail out to the rim marked off with rocks and rock cairnes. It was still cool so we didn't get overheated for our short jaunt to the rim. A few obligatory pix of the canyon from Toroweap:





The Colorado River is some three thousand feet below the canyon rim. Getting to the edge gives me the willies.
