Very nice area to camp and explore.
It is the canyon and the river that brings you back again and again. The hike into the canyon was much eaier than I figured so I really enjoyed it. I learned to whitewater raft in the Box, the section below here and have done the remaining sections below that. It is an outstanding area for hikes, climbs or river trips.
Hiked through snow on rim in 20 degree weather. Headed down south face in snow free 60 degree weather. Good hike.
...I stopped and camped here a few times.
Went with several friends on a long day trip from Albuquerque. We were carrying on a love affair with the Rio Grande that continues even now. Gorgeous area, easy hike, great weather - what more could you ask for?
Incredible day, easy hike. Planning to come back here to stay a couple nights.
