More hiking!

In order to see sunrise from one of the best spots in the canyon (and there are plenty of them), we woke up at 4:30 am to jump & run to catch the hiker's shuttle at 5:00 am. The shuttle took us to the South Kaibab trailhead where we began our short hike down. Sunrise was at 5:58 am and we saw it from Oooh Aaah Point only .9 miles down from the top. We continued another .6 miles to Cedar Ridge where we had some breakfast snacks and took a rest. The sky was beautiful and the wind was blowing keeping the temps pretty cool. We made good time going uphill stopping often to rest. We got back to the trailhead about 8:30 am, making the total round-trip in only 3 hrs. Here's some pics I took this morning.
