Day 3

Today was our hard core hike day! We got up, ate, packed & went. Our 1st & only ranger led hike was to a marine fossil site behind Bright Angel Lodge (very cool). We continued hiking up that side of the rim as far as we could ( the road was closed do to construction).
Then we went to the other part of the South Rim and hiked a very strenuous "trail".
We then got in the car for some sit down time & drove to the East Rim. We visited Indian Ruins, The Look out Tower, & Many Vista Points. We saw a coyote who was stopping traffic.
In the car we went, back to the South Rim. We hiked a ways down into the canyon. We ate our dinner there, watching the sunset. Then it was back to camp for cocoa & smores (do they ever tire of these?)
