So I now know that you can, and should, post stuff in multiple communities at once instead of posting multiple times, once for each community... Lesson learned.

Fixed the album for my #grandcanyon #hiking trip. I think I had the permissions wrong. I also put the videos inside the album. I started at 0630 (that's A.M. ;-) and it was 25 degrees F at the rim. Headed down the Kaibab Trail (2.5 hours), checked out Phantom Ranch (1 hour), then went back up the Bright Angel trail (4.5 hours). I DO NOT recommend this hike to anyone but seasoned hikers. If you choose to do the hike, make sure that you are well prepared for it! I would also not personally do this hike in the summertime. A great setup for death.

I liked your video as you approached the river. Brings back great memories! 

I stayed overnight at the Phantom Ranch.  It allowed me to linger by the river for a long while and enjoy the companionship of other travelers over dinner.

Did my #grandcanyon   #hiking  trip. I made it down the bottom in about 2.5 hours on South Kaibab, spent 1 hour at Phantom Ranch, then back up in about 4.5 hours on Bright Angel. Very long day, seasoned hikers only! And DO NOT attempt that in the summertime. #nationalpark

"War is an ugly thing. But not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of BETTER MEN than himself." - John Stuart Mill, 1850

I booked a room at this facility for my father who is on travel for late evening on 3/15/15. I did that through orbitz. The orbitz website did some sort of refresh and changed the date to 3/29 without me noticing. Long story short. I called orbitz to try and fix this as my dad was at the front desk waiting for the room; Orbitz was very helpful to try and get it changed. The lady sitting at the front desk, right in front of my father, told the Orbitz representative that they were not willing to wave the cancellation, 100% of the cost, and that he would have to book another room for another $50. This is just rotten and despicable.
