So on our third day we met up with Rene's sister, Christine, who had her friends with her and we hiked up to Indian Gardens, which is 4.7 miles (I think--forgetting specifics here) from the bottom of the canyon (Bright Angel Campground).

So my shoes are sorta muddy here, but as you look at part three, you'll see how muddy they go. It was insane how muddy the top of the trail was!!

Those trails you see are apart of the "Devil's Corkscrew" - and a nightmare they are! It was pretty intense, but we made it up fine. :)
