To the Colorado River

May 19th 2008 — Grand Canyon,National Parks — 11:00 pm

The hike from Horseshoe Mesa to the river was really excellent, as if I would have expected anything else. The Kaibab Plateau is an interesting place to hike. You see the trail far ahead winding around a bend, and then in an hour (or more) you’ll actually be there after you weave your way around this fractal pattern of trail with endless side canyons needing to be circumnavigated. All in all we probably saw 4 people that day. It was a long hike, I don’t know how long but after we got to where we were camping moving any extra really summoned some willpower.

  2. Can you drink the water at the Miner’s place? I think the picture of the rapids captures it well! How many people every see the sun rise over the Grand Canyon? You have made a lot of fabulous memories!

  3. How big was the lizard? About the size of a T-Rex? Must have been frightening…
