Best way to train for a 10,000 mile off-road motorcycle adventure across Asia?
Four days and 30 miles of backpacking in the Grand Canyon, just a week before my departure for the ride!
We hiked down the South Kaibab Trail to the bottom of the canyon, pitched tents for two nights, then climbed out the Bright Angel Trail with a bonus night at Indian Garden.
I admit, doing the Grand Canyon has never been near the top of my list throughout my 30+ years of backpacking, but I absolutely loved it. The views from the trails and from the bottom are truly exquisite.
