We hiked down South Kaibab to camp at Bright Angel, so we visited Phantom Ranch for a nice, cold beer. It was awesome and well worth every penny! :-) Plus, how many people have had a beer at the bottom of the Grand Canyon??

The main purpose of this review is to encourage folks to be patient and try for last minute reservations. After trying 2 consecutive months a year ahead of time (hitting the redial button on the phone repeatedly), I gave up and booked a Grand Canyon...More
