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!
