We started off the trip by backpacking in the Grand Canyon. This was an awesome experience. We hiked Grandview Trail to Horseshoe Mesa. It was a grueling, steep, rocky 3 miles and 2500 vertical feet from the rim to the campsite. Then it was an additional 3/4 mile to Page Spring, the nearest water source.

The rest of the week was much more relaxing. Dinner at Pita Jungle (a truly Flagstaffean restaurant), plate-sized cinnamon rolls, chillin downtown, minigolf, pool, ping pong, hot tub at the resort.
