National Park Hike – Grand Canyon National Park

Many things will not happen for many people because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some are quite important and will have ongoing negative consequences. Others are somewhat trivial.

I had contemplated a long road trip to view as many locations in the National Park system as possible. I do not think that is going to happen.

I decided to pick a trail in each of the locations and walk that distance. I finished 23 hikes and then stopped. It is time to begin again.
