I’m writing this post from the plane on my way to Arizona. This is the weekend of my big hike. My penultimate quest for my recovery is to be able to hike across the Grand Canyon. Based on my training hikes, I’m feeling good about this trip. This is my first trip back to the canyon in several years, but this is, by far, the best shape I’ve been in for a canyon hike since I moved to North Carolina eight years ago.
