There’s the Grand Canyon as seen from one of the rims. Spectacular. Awe-inspiring. Dramatic. And there’s the Grand Canyon below the rims, a very different place steeped in wilderness, bus-sized boulders, tumbling streams, knee-shredding switchbacks, solitude, and the cataract-punctuated Colorado River.

I wanted to hike the Grand Canyon before reading this book. Now I really want to hike the Grand Canyon.

Fun way to experience the Corridor Trails without the sweat, but would have limited appeal to anyone but Canyonheads.

Mueller gives the reader a lot of history behind the NPS work along with his adventures.
