Several Wenatchee women — they call their group “Women with Altitude” — completed a Grand Canyon hike in mid-March. Cici Asplund says they hiked from the canyon’s South Rim down the South Kaibab Trail and then crossed the Colorado River at Phantom Ranch, before returning back up to the South Rim via the Bright Angel Trail. “We started in snow at 40 degrees, descending into 70 degrees and springtime at the bottom of the canyon,” Asplund writes. “Highlights were the ever-changing panoramas from the South Kaibab Ridge Trail, and viewing condors, with their 9-foot wingspans, soaring above us.” Pictured, from left: Susan Ballinger, Lorena Boyd, Jan Dappen, Cici Asplund, Yuna Min, Jo Lowe, Kate Bratrude, Julie Zimmerman, Janet Bauer, Cheryl Short-Morin, Carrie Arthur and Polly Feehan.
