Bright Angel to Indian Gardens
Bright Angel: Rosetta Stones
The famous Bright Angel Trail, the Canyon's most popluar trail, is stunning in its beauty, and fascinating in the stories its walls tell.  This trail has a bit of everything, from faults to folds to fossils, and beyond.  We will traverse these Grand slopes down to Indian Gardens, a natural spring that feeds a wonderful, shady riparian area in this desert.
