One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spontaneously met some couchsurfers in Arizona and spent 4 days backpacking through the Grand Canyon with them. I had never backpacked before, nor had the proper equipment. However the encouragement of my new friends, and stunning beauty of the canyon, made this insane challenge one of my fondest memories.
