More of the Bright Angel Canyon view.  BTW, in an early presentation, the canyon I said was one of my favorites, IS in fact called the Bright Angel Canyon, and the rim to rim trail passes through there.  One day!
View across from El Tovar and the Bright Angel trail head.  Will be walking there this morning.  All paved.  Some pretty steep.
 Love the contrast here with the bright golden yellow, and the pinks and purples in the back ground.
This one is disturbing, in that it really shows the smoke in the Canyon from the fires in Northern Arizona
More contrasting colors.  Just amazing.  Certainly not a boring place at all!  Again some of the trail is visible from here.
Double click on this view of the trail to enlarge., There are lots of people on the trail.  Some who are no intent of hiking any distance, and are not geared for it at all.  WATER is the biggest thing you need to hike even short distances into the Canyon.  I would not have gone that far without my regular water pack.
Continuing on the RIM trail here, past the El Tovar Hotel.
This view shows the CUT out on the trail.  NOT a natural bridge, but man made.  A definite must!
Trail view here, is so inviting.  I am so drawn by it, WANT to hike it so badly!!
This little ledge on trail, is there on purpose, a place to retreat to when the mule trail comes along!
                                                    Better view of the opening in the wall.
Trail ahead doesn't look all that hard at this point. 
Ok las view of the opening.....tomorrow something more with this point on the trail.
