Pictures list from September 27th, 2004

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. Maybe the most spectacular of the US hikes. It's exactly the other way - at first you descend, then you go back up! Then the landscape is gorgeous and very wild. I descended South Kaibab Trail (some 1500m elevation difference) and went back up on Bright Angel Trail (some 1350m).
