Our packs are ready and clothes for the days between are packed. We definitely want clean clothes to wear on the day we leave the canyon. It is common for hikers to wear the same clothing for days. We have pants, several layers of shirts, extra underwear and socks.
We will stop at motels along the way to make our last day as short as possible without driving the entire distance in one day. It is important that we check in at two locations at the Grand Canyon to confirm we will be eating at Phantom Ranch and at the BackCountry Office that we are hiking down.
First stop is Winslow, AZ. We will definitely stop in at Relic Road Brewing Company for dinner. Every time we pass Winslow we try to get a lunch or dinner. They make Fantastic sandwiches.
Full and heading to the motel for some sleep.
Wow! The Quality Inn here is not much to get excited about. I am not sure what grade of plywood they put in the beds but they are very firm. The free breakfast was good.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
