Arizona Solo Trip Day 2 (Bright Angel Trail, South Kaibab Trail, Wupatki, Sunset Crater, & Sedona )

After an adventurous Day 1 on my solo trip in Arizona, I was ready to get a start on Day 2. I woke up around 5:30 AM so I could watch the sunrise over the Grand Canyon. Since my cabin was only 20 or so yards from the edge, I got up and started down the Bright Angel Trail before the sunrise.

Overall my first day was such a joy. Once I touched down in Arizona, I was so much less nervous about traveling alone and just excited. I got to feel the warmth from the sun which Pennsylvania hadn’t had much of before I left, got to visit two new National Monuments, and visited one of my favorite National Parks. Day one was a great success.
