Grand Canyon

2008 November 30: My first time hiking in Grand Canyon! Daddy and I went down the Bright Angel trail, just .8 miles round-trip to the first switchback. I was just learning to walk, so Daddy only had to carry me part of the way.

Hermit to Dripping Springs  Sucess!

Words fail me to describe how great (and beautiful) this hike was. It was like nothing I'd ever done before. I'm hoping to return in 2010 and do a rim-to-rim hike.

Indian Gardens  Sucess!

The hardest hike I have ever done. We were so unprepared. We didn't have any of the right gear, or enough food, it was so bad. It was beautiful and I would do it again, next time I will be prepared.

A few times  Sucess!

North Rim: Summer 1993.

R2R2R June 1, 2009: Day 1 - went from the North Rim via the Kaibab trail to the Bright Angel Campground next to Phantom Ranch; spent the night there. Day 2 -took the Bright Angel trail to the south rim, then took the Kaibab trail back to Bright Angel campground, spent a second night there. Day 3 - hiked back to the North Rim. Got very lucky on the weather as the temperatures never exceeded 95F.

April 13 - April 15, 2019 I explored the Arizona Strip including climbing Mt. Logon and Mt. Trumbull, and visiting the Toroweap outlook of the Grand Canyon, and hiking down to the Colorado river via the Lava Falls route.

first trip to the north rim  Sucess!

a couple days after my 16th birthday (celebrated on mt charleston) we drove to the north rim of the grand canyon and stayed at the quaint jacobs lake lodge. I took a hike to Cape Final, a wonderful secluded "diving board" of an overlook. saw only a few souls on trail and none at the overlook. took a bit of class 3ish scramblng at the end. i may have ended up at a different spot, but a great view and fun scramble/hike in the end
