Photographer's Note

Here you can see the "zig-zag" South Kaibab trail :)
It was easy to get down, but little bit worse to get back.. :)

The trail descends 4,500 feet in total, there is drinking water at the start and at the river but not in between. Hence because of steepness, exposure to the sun and lack of water the South Kaibab is more difficult and strenuous than the Bright Angel (other trail which leads to the Colorado river) although it is slightly more scenic.
I personally enjoyed the views along the South Kaibab more, it's much more open as the Bright Angel trail.

..Like a superhighway into the Canyon.. :)
