    Little Colorado River Gorge - Epic Canyon Hike, some Pics

    Way back in 1998, before digital cameras, before lightweight stuff was invented, before packrafts ...... we were one of the few pioneers to through hike from Cameroun, AZ and out to Desert View in GCNP. Very few places to get out.

    Cottonwood Cove

    Sandstone can be downright weird... 01/17/2015 About a year ago my dad had visited the Coyote Buttes South special permit area, specifically the Pawhole Trailhead. While it was neat, he had heard that the Cottonwood Cove TH had far better. Rivals The Wave better. But he despaired, for the...

    Wave Winter Wonderland

    New Year's Day | Thursday, January 1, 2015 Welcome to my first trip report of 2015, and what an adventure it was! This was a fun trip report to write, not because the photos are necessarily great, but because it was a fun day in unique conditions. This may have been my tenth visit to Coyote...

    Birthday Arch & Horseshoe Bend

    New Year's Eve | Wednesday, December 31, 2014 Yesterday was supposed to have been an easy day of hiking to Cobra Arch, but after adding another hike down the Paria River we ended up hiking another 11 mile day. I always seem have problems keeping my easy days short! Since we were planning on...

    Coyote Buttes North Tour

    Monday, December 29, 2014 On Monday morning we got an early start and drove back to the Wire Pass trailhead so we could spend the day in Coyote Buttes North and visit the Wave. While I have been here plenty of times over the past couple of years and had no intentions of returning this year...

    Wire Pass to Buckskin Gulch

    Sunday, December 28, 2014 On Sunday morning we drove over to the Wire Pass trailhead from our hotel in Page and arrived shortly after the sunrise. Our plan for today was to hike through Wire Pass and then down Buckskin Gulch for a few miles. Unfortunately, we would not be unable to go down...

    Grand Canyon, rim to rim to rim, october 2013

    If you haven't seen the report of my other Grand Canyon trip, in 2011 i went to the North Rim with my family, but just long enough to see that the canyon was there. Two years later i managed to make it down to backpack with my brother. If you only see the Grand Canyon from the rim, you haven't...

    2013 Kanab Creek Backpack

    Did a week long backpack with friends down Kanab Creek to the Colorado. Exited the Canyon through Deer Creek and up The Bill Hall Trail. No pics from the section along the River as it was arduous and required full attention at all times with razor sharp rock hopping for 10 miles. ( 2 days ) As...

    Grand Canyon, Tonto trail, Grandview Point to Hermits Rest. 8 days, october

    Here you go @Joey First of all the disclaimer. I had a strange experience this trip, where i took hundreds of photos, and ended up liking the majority of them quite a bit. I've tried to pare down the selection. But i feel that all of these are relevant to the story of this trip. We covered a...

    Buckskin Gulch day hike

    In October, on our way down to the Grand Canyon. We didn't get quite the days that we wanted for our hike in the Grand, our first night was monday in stead of saturday, but we made the best of it, and stopped along the way down. It helped to break up the drive some any way. We got to the trail...

    Cathedral Wash

    11/10/2014 I've spent most of my life living near the Grand Canyon but have never adventured in it. As a child the place terrified me and I couldn't get near the edge without a death grip on my parents or a fence. "I don't want to go in the giant hole! I'll never get out!" Years later, my...

    Backpacking the Superstitions - April 2013

    Never posted this but thought I would add it. Four of us from the Houston Texas area decided to do a hike in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix in late Apr 2013. We drove to the Rogers Trough Trailhead and did a loop using the Rogers Trail, Frog Tanks Trail and The Reavis Valley trail...

    The Gila Box

    Another post from my blog. The Gila Box seems like it would be a great little float trip. At the end of September we had a "Birthday Weekend" -basically the weekend closest to the family member's birthday is set aside for an adventure. Our oldest wanted to go camping, fishing, and soak in a...

    Chiricahua from the top down

    One of the longer hikes I've done recently. Originally posted on my blog. Over Labor Day we went to the Chiricahuas to visit Chiricahua National Monument once more. Our oldest kept asking to go, so when we had the long weekend it made for a great destination about 2 hours from Sierra Vista. We...

    1994: Grand Falls

    Recently I found an old slide out of 1994. We stayed in Flagstaff and visited the Little Colorado River Grand Falls. Luckily it was after a period with some rainy thunderstorms. Sorry - the scan is pretty grainy.

    Dragoon Springs, AZ

    It's been a while since I've posted. Here's a TR from a nearby historic site I visited earlier this month. As usual, posted on my blog as well. On Labor Day Weekend we headed east to the Chiricahua Mountains for a getaway. On the way we had one important stop to make at Dragoon Springs. I...

    Drop of a hat Grand Canyon road trip

    I decided to post a trip report after all, even though the trip was brief, because who hasn't wanted to hit the road at the drop of a hat? I had resigned myself to missing the Southwest monsoon season because it just wasn't in the budget. I'd already been to Utah 3 times this year and have a...

    Sacred Mountain

    Another post from my blog. We woke up on the Saturday before Memorial Day knowing that we were running out of time on our trip. We ate breakfast, then loaded up to hike Sacred Mountain, an off-the-radar hike to some ruins. We had learned a little bit about Sacred Mountain when we visited...

    V Bar V Petroglyphs

    As usual, you saw it first on my blog. The Solar Calendar at the V Bar V The V-Bar-V Heritage Site is only open a few days a week, centered around weekends. So even though we were camped nearby and drove by the V Bar V several times, we had to delay our visit until it opened on Friday. We...

    Tonto Natural Bridge, AZ

    As usual, crossposted from my blog. Tonto Natural Bridge is a pretty amazing place. It was discovered by David Gowan, a prospector, who tangled with some Indians in a bad way and needed a hideout. As he was running, he stumbled into the canyon with the natural bridge, then hid out in the...
