GCNP Bright Angel to 1.5 Mile Resthouse. Always wonderful to be at the Big Ditch, even for a super short visit. Took the descent very carefully with the bum ankle, but managed to get down in good shape. Even pretty early in the morning, it gets hot in late July, so the climb back up was a slow grind-y affair.

GCNP to Hermit's Rest. A more difficult than expect ride out to Hermit's Rest on a beastly rental bike. Super heavy with huge fat tires - a machine designed to maximize rolling resistance. Add the hot weather and the fact that I just don't have biking legs (plus this was back to back with a 1100 foot descent and ascent in the canyon), and this was not easy.
