It was a great hike! Although part of the South rim was closed due to falcon breeding, we really enjoyed the tour and the beautiful sceanary.
We decided to climb via Laguna Meadow and to stay overnight at Boot Canyon. This was a good choice, as we could leave our lagguage at BC and continue then to the South Rim.
This option gave us also enough time to really enjoy the views without the need to rush although the hike is defenetly do-able within one day.
Decended the next day via Pinnacles Trail which I found even more beautiful then the way via Laguan Meadow.
Hike is not difficult and the path is easy to follow. Unfortunately, we did not see any wildlife except for a deer (although we were told that there is a big chance to see bears at Boot Canyon)
