Today's route stats: 

    Distance: 9.5 miles

    Elevation Gain:  4300 feet

    Elevation Loss:  0 feet

Today I hiked out via the Bright Angel Trail.  It is long, but gradual.  Still, 4300 feet elevation gain is nothing to sneeze at.  I zipped up the trail without stopping very often, except at Indian Garden where I stopped for lunch.
