If any of you have not seen the film "The Grand Canyon: Between River and Rim" - please look for it. The 750 mile journey - over 71 days, broken up into separate legs is a feat fewer than 30 people have ever accomplished. Only 8 people have done it in a single push. When I keep saying that the images we show only represent a small fraction of the Canyon - the film and the book will show you more of it than you can imagine. They say that any view you get from anywhere on the rim will show you less than 1/5th of the total Canyon - You'll get a good feel for truly how extraordinary and massive this gem is.
"McBride and Fedarko—from Basalt, Colorado, and Santa Fe, New Mexico, respectively—documented their experience for National Geographic in advance of the National Park System’s Centennial in 2016. Although they originally entertained notions of being able to hike the Grand Canyon in a continuous push—a feat only eight people have ever accomplished—the extreme difficulty of the hike quickly set in.
“We got annihilated on the first leg,” says McBride. They decided to it break up into more manageable legs, spread out over a year.
