Today is my husband's birthday and his gift arrived just in time. We are hiking from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon to the South Rim with 3 nights below the rim!

This is our magical, most desired, perfect itinerary!

Wow! It can be hard to get those permits. And perfect timing.

No kidding! And to get my first choice? We submitted 6 itineraries with reversals and they granted us our first choice?!?! I also lucked out with South Rim lodging at Thunderbird for the night after. I literally got THE LAST room available on the South Rim for those dates. But I want a bed and a private shower after a R2R.

No luck on North Rim lodging (seriously, it is already booked solid), but snagged a room at Jacob Lake. I'm so stupid excited. Oh and I booked the TransCanyon shuttle already, too. Every detail is nailed down. PHEW!

Congratulations! That's great! I can't wait to see your photos.

I've always wanted to do that same trek, though I don't think it will ever happen, since I'm a lousy backpacker. I will, however, be doing the easy Mount St. Helens with DD#2 and my granddaughters now that they are old enough. We'll approach from the "rougher" east side.

That sounds like a great gift and the timing was perfect!

If I ever decide to hike the canyon (), I am contacting you because I would have no idea how to even start planning such an expedition! Sounds like an involved process!

I would happily advise you! I've spent years learning the ropes.
