We got SO lucky with securing permits this year… on our first try we were able to lock down permits to hike the Grand Canyon from Rim 2 Rim opening week, with a campsite at Bright Angel Campground. Our permit was for a Wednesday, so we bit the bullet and took a whole week of work, building an epic trip around our Rim 2 Rim dates.
Our second piece of good luck came when we heard that we had successfully secured a permit to hike The Subway in Zion. And lastly, we were able to secure a day hike permit for Coyote Buttes South, the less popular neighbor to Coyote Buttes North (home of The Wave). With three permits in hand, we just needed to connect the dots between each destination.
It was such an awesome, epic adventure that I created a memory book for our trip. So instead of recapping it all here, please enjoy the book!
