Here's a map that includes the Kaibab Trail we will take down, starting on the right at Yaki Point, stopping at the bottom at Bright Angel Camp, and returning up Bright Angel Trail on the left side, passing Indian Gardens about half-way up.

I found this colorful diagram cross-section of the Grand Canyon on Wikipedia. The link includes the name and a link to more information about each of the rock layers.

This link to the National Park Service Geology Fieldnotes is a great introduction to Grand Canyon geology. Enjoy!

This picture was taken in 2004 during our visit to the south rim.
Welcome to our Grand Canyon weblog. We will use this site to post useful information as we plan for our hike down into the canyon, and just to have fun.
