Mather Campground is located on the South Rim of The Grand Canyon and is first come first serve this time of year. It will be easy to snag a campsite or two on Friday for a weekend of hiking and relaxing. We will head up Friday morning and be there for by noon when the sites open for the day. This is tent only and limited to 6 people per site and one car. Depending on amount of people will determine how many sites we decide to grab.
The weather will be COLD at the campground with average highs in January of around 40 and lows around 20. We will however have a camp fire to keep warm. Here are weather averages http://explorethecanyon.com/weather/
Friday afternoon we can take a small hike and Saturday we have all day to hike. There are plenty of hikes available to choose from for all abilities. We are not set to hike a certain trail, but I would prefer people at least hike with a partner for safety reasons.
