Did my my first Rim to Rim to Rim in the Grand Cyn this past week. Cant wait till next year to do it again..

Dug.. what did you think of the last 2 miles of Bright Angel trail. I didn't think it was going to end, I told myself quit looking up on how far it is away.

Way to go, Mark! One-way was good enough for me. Sounds like October was a great time to go to get good temperatures.

When does the N. Rim close for winter?

Congrats!
When I did it last year, I also thought the last few miles were never going to end. Glad I started and ended on the South, for I couldn't imagine finishing up on the steeper North Rim.
Said I'd never do it again, but after finishing the 24 hour, 3 Peak Socal challenge(so hard), I'm looking forward to another R2R2R.

We were out there over 20 hours, so everything felt like it was taking too damn long. Last year via South Kaibab it was 17 hours RT. Bright Angel has the extra water, but the up and down plays to many mind games coming back. Congrats on getting it done!...............................................DUG
