I was lured to cut the drive in half by overnighting in a $27 room in Laughlin NV. Getting a bed each way was worthwhile, and I didn't spend any more money there. I drove in at midnight, but it was still like 94 degrees outside.
I spent a day hiking in the West Rim area at Grand Canyon. Here I am on the trail down into the Hermit Basin. It was a real hot day, so mostly I stayed near the rim.

Next day I climbed Mt Humphreys near Flagstaff. It was the hottest day of the year so far, so today it was a popular hike.
