We were to leave the Grand Canyon right after breakfast and while I had hiked the rim the day before I still hadn't walked more than a few feet down. So when I woke up I slid out of bed, grabbed my camera and took off. I would like to say I made it down a mile but I'm sure it was only half a mile or a little less but I had the place to myself. The only people on the trail were almost at the bottom, they must have started hiking in the dark. I stayed out there taking photos of the sunrise and only turned back after I was passed by the 3rd group of people. It was starting to get crouded, time to get back and load the van.
