Hiking from the Grand Canyon’s South Rim to its North Rim and then back — rim-to-rim-to-rim, or R3 for short — is the most epic hike in this national park. (Not counting off-trail adventures.) The only thing that surpasses its beauty is its difficulty: It is 42 miles long and includes about 11,000 vertical feet of ascent and descent.
"At the Grand Canyon, a Cancer Survivor Rises to the Challenge of a Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim Hike" is from the January 06, 2017 Travel section of The Washington Post. It was written by Dina Mishev and narrated by Jill Melancon.
