I will post my experience of camping at the bottom of the Grand Canyon from February 16th for 2 nights and 3 days. (Part 3)

February 18 (3rd day)
The campsite at the bottom of the valley was quite cold this morning as well.
Adam had begun preparing breakfast when it was still dim outside, so I decided to keep out of the cold and get out of my sleeping bag.

Today is finally the day of mountain climbing. The plan is to climb the Bright Angel Trail, which is different from the day before yesterday, in 8 hours with a break.
After breakfast, I cleaned up my tent and left the campsite at 8:40. In the first half, we will gradually increase the altitude while watching the Colorado River.
The weather was fine on that day, and even an hour after I started walking, the shade became less, and even a single shirt didn't bother me about the cold. It was scary to imagine that this was summer.
Three and a half hours after departure, we arrived at the Indian Garden at the middle point.
So I took a break for about an hour while having lunch slowly.

Departure for the summit at 1:00 pm.
The distance is not much different from the campsite to the Indian Garden, but the height difference is nearly double in the latter half, so it is physically tight.
First, aim for a 3-mile rest house. I climbed sedimentary rocks from 300 to 500 million years ago for a while, but if I look carefully at the surrounding rocks, I can see fossils of trilobites and ammonites.
Shortly before the 3-mile rest house, the trail began to be covered with snow.

Take a break and aim for the next 1.5 mile rest house.
From here to the summit, the switchback that is not exposed to the sun keeps climbing. The temperature dropped sharply and the snow that had fallen a few days ago was frozen and I almost slipped and fell.

When you reach the 1.5 mile rest house, you can see the summit quite close. At the same time, the traffic volume of people increases and we pass each other many times with tourists who enjoy simple experience hiking.

Goal at 5 pm!
I was very happy to see the Bright Angel Lodge, which I should be familiar with, only today.
At the same time, a tremendous sense of accomplishment was born. (end)

We will continue to report on the tour on Wednesday, March 3rd.
The final day of the third day begins at Gouldings Lodge in Monument Valley.
I have reported on Monument Valley before, but the tourist spots are still closed due to restrictions on activities in the Navajo settlement.
Since there is no access to the valley of Monument Valley, few tourists visit here and it is quiet.
You may now be able to experience the tranquil world of a time-slip in the days before it was known as the location of Hollywood movies.

I will post seasonal photos of Monument Valley from my guide.

On Tuesday, March 2nd, I will post a photo of the beautiful Asahi of the Grand Canyon from the guide who is on tour yesterday.

The early morning chill is still severe and the temperature is -5 ° C.
However, in a clear, cloudless sky, watching the sun slowly shine into the Grand Canyon valley as the sun rises makes me feel fine, forgetting all the unpleasant things.

Since the east exit of the Grand Canyon National Park is still closed, it will take about an hour and a half to move to Monument Valley after this.

The participants this time are a couple living in New York, but they are enjoying their time alone.
