As mentioned before, several people decided to do the rim-to-rim hike for something completely different (North Kaibab Trail from the North Rim to the Phantom Ranch and then Bright Angel Trail to the South Rim). I continued the tradition of taking the South Kaibab Trail down to the Phantom Ranch -- I think this trail is so incredibly beautiful and really provides a dramatic entrance into the canyon, so I wanted all the new hikers in our group to experience it (plus it it much shorter than the North Rim route - 6.5 miles vs. 14 miles!).
Below is a depiction of our routes as well as a group photo of our intrepid troop (Back Row: Karen, Liz, Michelle, Jack, Laurence, Howard & Front Row: Jason, Mark, Steve).
I didn't build a complete website for this hike; we all traded photos, so I have added a photo gallery below (clicking on one will show a larger version in a slideshow format). There is no real order to the photos.
