Bright Angel Trail from the South Kaibab Trail

 Here's a bit of perspective (or maybe not...the vastness of the Canyon makes it difficult to see how big/far things really are).  I took this picture from Cedar Ridge on the South Kaibab Trail.  The part I circled is a bit of green that is part of the Bright Angel Trail (above Devil's Corkscrew, I believe).  It was a little daunting at 6:00 in the morning to realize that the green spot I could barely see was where I would be walking back up five hours later.  Daunting...and exciting.  :)

GREAT day on the trail.  

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO HIKE TO THE RIVER AND BACK IN ONE DAY unless you've been training specifically for this hike, have plenty of food and water, have a good plan, and are doing it in spring or fall.  Heat kills (and makes it VERY unpleasant if it doesn't kill). See this post for details:
