Every time is like the first time; every time is the best time! Your instructor calls it the "Grand Cathedral" because many people compare it to a spiritual experience. The Canyon changes all day long...the colors, the light, the winds, and temperature. And, guess what? The visitors are changed by it. To hike the Canyon is glorious and self actualizing. But, it demands respect, focus and planning. There are many ways to proceed. Join us to learn the best trail for you and plan your hike. (1 session)
