    Kanab Creek via Kwagunt Hollow and Jumpup

    My son had put in for permits for North Bass but nope didn't get them so we decided to try another route for our fall Grand Canyon fix. Starting out by driving in the evening to Sowats point. We had an evening of car camping with a surprise sprinkle of rain then woke up in the morning to start...

    Bucket lists are confounding things. Some people fill them full of wishes that will go forever unfulfilled. Others voraciously tackle each item in course, eliminating the sense of a life unlived long before reaching retirement. As a pragmatist, I've never seen much use for bucket lists. Death...

    Grand Canyon-Bill Hall Trail to Thunder River and Deer Creek

    Last week three of us did a lollipop loop of about 27 miles. Starting from the Bill Hall Trail at Monument Point, North rim. The week had been rainy and we still weren't convinced of clearing. The original plan was to car camp on the trail head road the night before but it was rainy and cold...

    Toroweap

    I was never that interested in seeing the Grand Canyon. It's like it was too hyped up or something. So many people flocking to the edge of an abyss to stare off into... what? A big canyon? The pictures are pretty and all, but it just never struck me as some place I had to go to NOW. Hiking and...

    Desert noobs visit Zion and the North Rim

    Zion National Park, UT and the North Rim, AZ June 25th-30th, 2015 I normally prefer to travel solo on my hiking trips with the main exception being when my wife is able to join me. So when Tyne said her work schedule would allow her 5 days to hike with me this June, I jumped at the opportunity...

    Spring at Toroweap

    4/12/15 It had been a while since I had been out to Toroweap Overlook on the Grand Canyon. I've always thought it was one of the coolest views around and with my newfound obsession about the big ditch I wanted to see it again. So I mentioned it to my dad and convinced my brother to quote "sit...

    South Canyon

    South canyon hike to the Grand Canyon. A steep and rocky hike to a beautiful set of beaches and Vasey's Paradise. I was staying one night. Kept my pack-an ultralight-to 20 lbs with a gallon of water fully loaded. I was really glad as there were scrambles which would have been difficult with...

    Cove Canyon-A 4 day Grand Canyon Adventure 2/8-11/15

    Cove Canyon So when it landed that just two of us were going to be able to go down Cove Canyon in Grand Canyon, we hesitated and considered other options. I am proud to still be toughing it out on the adventure circuit and I think Jenny is too....but this canyon required a 60m rope and then the...

    Canyoneering and Backpacking in the Grand Canyon

    Originally posted on HowellsOutdoors with more photos (and there are a lot of good ones because it's the Grand Freakin' Canyon). A weekend with two national holidays means a lot of adventure, and I did that’s what I did. The crowning part of my weekend was a canyoneering and backpacking trek...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Grand Canyon Rim to Rim - Backpacking

    Although this isn't really backcountry, I thought it might be of interest to some. I had done the rim to rim before but wanted to do it with my son so I managed to get the permits for: Day 1: down the South Kaibab to the river and Bright Angel (just south of Phantom Ranch) for night 1. Day 2...

    Kanab Creek-Racetrack Knoll Summit, March 2014 Part 2.

    Continued from part 1. We were up on the esplanade, and had a clear uninterrupted view of our goal in sight. Art gazed upon the mound with a small grin. I stared down at this view, and that red knoll while up on that ridge, he said while pointing up at the southern rim. He’d been planning...
