Grand View Mesa-Horseshoe Mesa  Sucess!

Nice day hike...Steep, and a bit rocky, but certainly cuts down on the traffic of Bright Angel!

Bright Angel and S Kaibab  Sucess!

I've made 5 trips to the bottom over the years. They were all a lot of fun, but my favorite trip was with my Dad.

Beautiful Hiking  Sucess!

nearly rim to rim headed down the south kaibab trail and back up the bright angel trail. We stayed 3 nights and 'almost' made it to the north rim but our cocktail of travelers were not motivated. Great trip!

Spectacular!  Sucess!

Did the Lava Falls trail with some friends. That sign at the begining of the trail means what it says. Take lots of water! We ran out on the way back. I have also done the South Kiabab a few years ago.

Southern Side  Sucess!

Made a number of hiking trips, mostly Bright Angel to Phantom Ranch area(campground) Indian Gardens, Plateau Point, etc. Also got to get a tour of air quality monitoring the park does, most impressive. The day I was there was a clear day they have about 3 percent of the time. Have also made the hike into Supai.

The Canyon  Sucess!

Rim to rim as part of Everett Ruess Trail. Hiked into a closed north rim in April of 2001--had the campground on Bright Angel Point all to myself--not a single other camper there. Hiked into the canyon via North Kaibab trail and up to the South Rim via the South Kaibab.

Many other times while living in Flagstaff.

Can't Stand It...  Sucess!

The Grand Canyon itself is amazing, but I can't stand all the people at the beginning who are visiting and think because they've read the warning signs they can lecture you on if you're prepared enough... and I was. I was having trouble realizing how big the canyon really was when I started, then once I finished and looked down I could really take it all in.
