My Sweety and I recently hiked about 9 miles at the Grand Canyon. We took the Bright Angel trail down to the Indian Gardens campground.
We camped out the night before at Mather Campground. It is located in the Grand Canyon Village.
What is better than food cooked while camping out? I can't think of a single thing!
Below are shots from the hike. What's great about this trail is there are water stops with good drinking water and bathrooms every 1.5 miles. That helps a lot. You are able to carry less water weight that way.
