1. The day following our completion of the north to south Rim to Rim, we went on a ranger lead hike on the South Kaibab trail down to Cedar Ridge.  This photo is the view just below the trailhead.

2. Some of the many switchbacks.

3. Here's our group on the trail.

4. There was a lot of smoke in the canyon from fires burning on the north rim.

5. Another shot of the switchbacks in the trail.

6. Here is our group looking for fossils, and finding some too!

7. Smoke was really killing the distant views.  On the near ridge you can see some of the South Kaibab trail.

8. Our group, overlooking O' Neill Butte.  More of the South Kaibab trail can bee seen beyond the butte.

9. We're just about back up to the trailhead here; being followed by a mule train.
