Rock slide closes part of Bright Angel Trail at Grand Canyon

First the lodge closed (for renovation) and now the trail... At least nobody was hurt. Arizona Daily Sun-: GRAND CANYON -- The Bright Angel Trail from the mile and a half house to Indian Gardens will be closed effective immediately to mule traffic and all hikers due to a rock slide caused by this week's storm that completely covered the trail. Another section of the trail washed out when a wall failed. This portion of the trail will remain closed through the weekend and will be re-evaluated the beginning of next week. Trail crews have begun work on the trail. All other trails within the park remain open, including the Bright Angel Trailhead to the mile and a half house.
