Walk Across Grand Canyon

“If I can do it, anybody can do it,” remarks Tammy Lovell in my newest episode of my Walk in the Park TV series on Ithaca, NY public access channel 13. She’s speaking of hiking across the Grand Canyon, a 25 mile trek from the North Rim to the South Rim in this famous national park in northern Arizona. “But you do have to know what you are doing; you have to be careful,” she cautions.

Tammy and her husband Jim Rundle joined up with two others to spend five days on their “trip of a lifetime” last November. In their story here, they tell us about their trek, how they prepared, the equipment they chose, and they share dozens of gorgeous photographs from the trail.

You can see their story online here, or watch it on Ithaca’s public access channel 13 over the next few days, including 10:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday both, and finally next Tuesday, at 8:00 p.m. (and at other times they station manager may select).

But if you can’t get it on TV, see it right here! Jim and Tammy share valuable tips for planning your own trip of lifetime.
