South Kaibab Trail a mile or two down.

 

It was 120F at Phantom Ranch.  Dave was cooling it in the shade waiting for the sun to drop below the inner rim. 120F_Dave_thumb.jpg (19500 bytes)

 

North Kaibab trail, a couple miles from the top.   The trail is invisible but you can see that besides us there were other jackasses on the trail.
