New video of the barefoot Grand Canyon crossing (R2R)
What a blessing to have enjoyed not one, but TWO trips to Grand Canyon last month to hike Rim-to-Rim.
The first time I hiked with a wonderful group of folks from the Phoenix area; the second time, since I was by myself, I thought I would have more time to set up my little camera along the trail and record bits of video . . . yes, I had a “grand” idea to create a documentary about my adventure.
It was tough enough to be hiking . . .
In the dark
In the COLD . . .
When I started out from the North Rim . . . to be fiddling about composing shots seemed almost foolhardy, given my numb-toes predicament and need to get down to a lower, warmer part of the trail as soon as possible.
As the day (and my toes) thawed out, it became apparent that I needed to keep moving moving moving to make my 4 pm meeting time with my gracious husband who had dropped me off at the North Rim trailhead and was then driving hundreds of miles to meet me at the South Rim . . . so my grandiose dreams of an Oscar-nominated documentary got left along the trail.
I did manage to “re-enact” my passing along a few sections of trail . . . these clips (plus a little “interview” I created at home) I stitched together in a video (click here).
Happy (Hollywood?) Trails!
