I awoke to more cloudy weather, although during the day there were periods of sunshine. Today I headed for Bright Angel Campground near Phantom Ranch. This would be my second time there -- the first being only a couple of months earlier.
It seemed a bit tedious getting past all the arms of Cremation Canyon. There were more ups and downs than I was expecting, even though the map clearly shows this.
After setting up at Bright Angel Campground, I took off on a day hike to do the River Trail between the two bridges. Apparently I didn't take any photos of Phantom Ranch or Bright Angel Campground.
