Got a little dose of wifi/data and posted a few pics. But bigger updates will have to wait.
We are starting another 8-9 day leg going rim to rim today with 8 days of food (why can’t I just live off of spirulina and oxygen?). We’ve wrestled 8 days of food into our packs. Such effort and we aren’t walking yet.
Exploring the Crazy Jug route to Deer Creek and Kanab Creek. Then out Hack Canyon to the strip and Colorado City.
Tapeats Creek is still flooding, it is a wet year around here. So we are avoiding that route but still getting the spirit of Hayduke. The Park Service describes route we are on as having “moderate flesh shredding brush”. It is a route described by Harvey Butchart, who is to the Grand Canyon as Fred Beckey is to the Cascades. I’m excited about the route! It will also be good conditioning for returning home to do trips with friends Yana, Carla, Matt, and others.
Maybe 9 to 14 days until there is an update. We go from Colorado City into Zion NP and the last leg of the Hayduke.
More to come!
