Backpacking trip in the Grand Canyon with an overnight stay at Bright Angel campground near Phantom Ranch on the Colorado river. Our descent was on the shorter but steeper Kaibab trail and we ascended the Bright Angel trail. The latter also has intermediate water stops at Indian Gardens campground, the 3-mile rest house, and the 1.5-mile rest house.
