Rim to Rim: Before the Trip

I’ve been wanting to hike the Rim to Rim ever since my best friend Nicole’s dad did it. We were in ninth grade. I’d rather not tell you how long ago that was.

I’m a terrible planner. You know what doesn’t happen without a really well-executed plan? A Rim-to-Rim. So Nicole and I found out we were both going to be in Phoenix for a high school reunion, and then she told me about this guided tour, and THEN she told me she’d already booked it. I didn’t even have time to get worried about it.

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to tell you about our Rim-to-Rim adventure—but you should really check this out for yourself.
