Hiking down to Roaring Spring

Today I went on a long hike to Roaring Spring.It was 3000feet down and 3000 feet up the North Kaibab trail that connects the North Rim (top) to the Colorado river(bottom) of the Grand Canyon. The actual hike down to the Colorado river is 8300feet so I just went barely less than half way down :)

It was fun and I really had a tough time hiking up those steep rocky mountains. The bad part was I got sunburned and I look so dark now. Hope it doesn't last long.
