Hiking, Views, and Best Friends

So where have I been? Enjoying a long weekend with some of my best friends. We decided to split the weekend into 2 parts. One for Ranger Rick (hiking in the Grand Canyon) and one for Model Molly- this part includes, pool, pedicures, wine, and reality TV relaxing.

The first part of the weekend was hiking. After a fun 4 hour drive up to the Canyon where we covered about 1 year of catch up topics, had 2 bathroom breaks, and one good laugh after finding Molly had the seat warmer on in the backseat (making her a little uncomfortable in the car) we found ourselves ready to hit the trails.

We got a late afternoon start and had one mission…to see the Colorado River. Going down was a piece of cake and unlike most hiking odd experience to go down first. We had some amazing views and it was gorgeous. At times we got a little stressed as we hadn’t found the river view yet and wanted to make sure we got back before sunset. Around Skelton’s point we saw the river, and then began the hike back up.

The River- We made it

Oh boy, it was steep. Between some altitude making the air a little thin, the intense sun, and the steep incline we all kept ourselves going with the anticipation of knowing we could eat whatever we wanted when we got to the top. We made it out in a record 2 hours, well before sunset, and still with a little water left. Ranger Rick enjoying the hike up since we couldn’t yap as much.

We rounded out the evening having drinks and watching the sunset over the Canyon and then found some Mexican for dinner. Where thanks to Rick leaving the restaurant via the closet we had a few more laughs…a great day and while there was doubt our hotel room had A/C giving us a perfect night sleep!

Stay tuned for 2 more posts on our adventure. A) That’s my parking spot and B) Driving on Empty
