Everyone else in the camping party had left early in the morning but having gotten very little sleep I don't head out til around 10am which is very unlike me when I have limited time in an awesome location. I'm off food but drink lots of water, plenty re-hydration medicine and lots of lovely tablets to stop be being so ill.
Even though I think it kind of takes away from the idea of vast wilderness of the Grand Canyon I was very thankful that there is actually a bus system that goes round large sections of the National Park South Rim area. This is really what saves my trip here. There is no way I'm capable of walking far so I fully utilise the bus routes to see as many view points as possible and to spend as long as possible soaking up the epic Canyon views.
My first stop back at Mather Point, where we had watched the sun set is still amazing. The sheer size of the Canyon is immense but I also make friends with the local wildlife.

Having picked some spots that are somewhat spread out my next drop off is Yaki Point before heading to Yavapi Point and checking out the Geological Museum there as well. I do all the usual sit on the edge photos although probably not the best idea when exploring alone and while ill.

When I get back to camp the group have decided to make smores. I reluctantly try a smore and the idea is definitely good and I quite like it but American chocolate is quite horrible. Hershey's is definitely not for me and it really leaves an aftertaste.
Its an early bed for me as I hope and pray I'm better tomorrow as its a long bus trip to Las Vegas.
