Continued from South Rim Part 2: Boot Canyon. — this is the last part in the South Rim Saga! We had just eaten lunch and packed up. The sun came out and visability was much better for our trip back — the views were incredible! We took the Boot Canyon trail to the Pinnacles trail — it had tons of neat rock formations. Saw Emory Peak — going to have to do that one someday!
We rounded a turn and got past some trees we could see the lodge about 2 or 3 miles away — look for the buildings with the brown roofs in the picture above — and we knew we were getting closer to home. You can really see why this area is called The Basin! And we were impressed with how the lodge buildings and road don’t really make an impact on the area.
All in all it was a great hike! Can’t wait to do it again. And, we proved we’re Texas hikers worth our salt!
