|The Colorado River rolls thru the canyon|
|A relatively level section of Bright Angel Trail is visible. Keep going another 3,000' to the canyon floor.|
And escape is what we wanted to do after battling the very large crowds on the South Rim. Everyone should see the Grand Canyon once you just need to be aware that it seems like everyone shows up on the same day on the south side. So we suggest you head to the North Rim... as it takes dedication to get there and a long drive which keeps the crowds to a reasonable number.
