Thinking of hitting the Grand Canyon with toddler in tow? Jack was 13 months when we visited the park, right on the cusp of the baby-to-toddler transition. We were working on the whole walking thing, but hiking the trails obviously wasn’t in the cards for him.
That wasn’t necessarily a bad thing for us, though! It meant we could still tackle any trails we wanted, as long as they could accommodate a sturdy all-terrain stroller, or were easy enough that we could use his baby hiking carrier.
So, we packed the sippy cups and hit the switchbacks! And, y’all… the trip was nothing short of awesome. Besides taking along some extra gear and planning time for extra stops, we still did and saw everything we wanted. Don’t think you can’t do the Grand Canyon with baby – it’s completely possible (even if you’re only mildly adventurous!)….
