Photo detail

It took Morris Brown, 69, and Phyllis Brown, 68, 15 hours to hike the Grand Canyon Monday from rim to rim. The pair trained for the gruelling hike months in advance and only carried light daypacks to make the trek in one day. Their biggest complaint: the 107-degree temperature at the canyon’s floor.

Payson couple goes rim to rim

For Morris and Phyllis Brown, age has never been a limiting factor.
