The gear you are carrying is of the utmost importance. When you go into the Grand Canyon, be sure to be as light as possible. Most of us are not used to carrying weight, and after hiking downhill all day long, you will see what it does for the knees, hips, backs, and shoulders. If you go with someone else, be sure to inspect your gear before departing on the trip. We do, and I know it saves headaches down the trail.
