Dear @Philreedshikes,

Thank you so much for helping me make sense of all of this, for I have never hiked in winter let alone hiked the Grand Canyon any time of year!   These pictures are really helpful, and I am so grateful for them.  Thank you!!  When I come back at the end of January, I will be sure to follow up with you and maybe share some funny videos of teenagers sliding and falling on the ice in their sneakers!  (wink).  For now, cheers!
