Length: 22 miles
Trail: South Kaibab Trail + Bright Angel
History: Once inhabited by the Pueblo culture, it later evolved into many different civilizations and tribes.
When I had attempted this trail, I did not sleep for over 3 days because I was busy playing Saga Frontier II. I woke up and missed my ride, I panicked, and some stranger offered to drive me from Los Angeles to Arizona. What a nice man. He would not even let me pay for gas.
We watched a meteor shower together and he took off afterwards without sleeping! I lost the party I was suppose to hike with, so I tried to sleep on the edge of the cliff, but I was too distracted by the beauty of the stars. The next morning I did the trail somewhat exhausted because it had been over 60 hours since I slept! I later learned that it 129 F that day. I really wanted to sleep, but I had the feeling if I did, I would not wake up. Ooops.
Here is a good BGM for this hot place.
