Above are some of Thom Janssen's favorite photos from past training hikes. (Thom is a veteran of all five hikes through Grand Canyon)

Yes, the destination is fantastic but the journey is too; It stands on its own merit. The training hike venues vary and are always interesting. Somehow Coach Gunn has managed to find some incredible venues right in our own back yard. Lightly traveled side roads, often not paved. Picturesque trails through wooded groves and grassy meadows. Stories abound of wild creatures our hikers have surprised; wild turkey, deer, fox and squirrel of every color. Leave your iPod at home, there's always a natural concert playing in full fidelity. You will long remember your time on these trails.
