"Don't try to make it to the..." Use Common Sense Tip by dzni
Use Common Sense, Grand Canyon: 8 reviews and 6 photos
Don't try to make it to the bottom of the canyon (the river) and back in one day! I know it can be done, but it's gotta be really grueling. I was hurting after making it only down about 2/3 of the way. Going farther down would have been painful coming back up. ;) Yeah, remember, it takes about 1/3 of the total time to go down in the canyon and the other 2/3 to come back up... i.e., for 2 hours down, it'll take 4 hours back for 6 hours total. Remember to rest if you get winded or tired, there's no sense in killing yourself. On the other hand, it'd be very expensive to airlift you out! So know your own abilities before you go down, or decide to go down further! I know it's tough, I've been there.
