Bright An­gel Trail, Ari­zona, USA

Vacations & Travel - - Global Adventures -

Set out to con­quer the Bright An­gel Trail, hik­ing out past the fa­bled In­dian Gar­dens and down to Plateau Point. Zip down the switch-back­ing trail – de­scend­ing from the canyon rim to the 38° C heat at the gar­dens in a few hours. By the time you ar­rive at Plateau Point, you’ll have the en­tire Grand Canyon to your­self – gone are the crowds, the bus­tle, the gift shops and the dis­trac­tions. You’ll be left with the mighty Colorado, the canyon walls in ochre and pur­ple, and all the beau­ti­ful soli­tude you could hope for. You’ll have 11 kilo­me­tres ahead of you on your re­turn trek to the South Rim, but each step up the trail is worth it. Bright An­gel, in­deed.
