OOh, so much fun to follow along your adventure! It's making me look forward to my upcoming visit to the Grand Canyon (Will it be open the end of Oct?).

Isn't it great when you are hiking the little community you find. Everyone wants to know the story of your adventure.

Dippers are my favorite! Water Ouzel! I could watch them walk along the bottom of a creek all day.

Glad you're safely back and had so much fun hiking with your friends, Gaelyn! I really like the photo of Amy below the Seeps - shows the magnificent proportion of the Canyon walls. I'm back in Breck - snowing here!

I enjoyed reading your post, it sounds like you had a wonderful seeing so much. All the photos are wonderful I especially loved the scenery, the falls and fossil, the red moth was cool and of course the Yellow Bellied Sapsucker. I also enjoyed hearing about the mice running around, now that must have been funny.

I liked that fossilized cockle. Pretty cool.

Filtering is a choice. :)

Some pretty cool scenery. Crawling into the underworld with a strategic plan to exit up and out to the other side. Its always a grand feeling.

Do you have interesting dreams when you are down in the Canyon?

Beautiful pics & story. We used to spend spring break in canyon country, and always marvelled at geological time laid bare. Thanks!

This place is incredible!! Love the water seeping through the rocks and the moth too.

I am in awe. But I have said that several times before. I just can't get over the beauty of it all. The canyon is magnificent (but I've said that before as well and will probably say it again).
I can't believe the three of you slept in a two man tent. Bit of a sardine can situation there. Bring on day 2.

Great photographs and I'm very impressed that you have such in depth knowledge of the geology, flora, and fauna of the canyon.

I love a good kind of tired.

I also love the bright red bug.

I can't even imagine dial-up anymore. You are a trooper!

Another fine tour with great photos and information. I like the close-ups of the rocks and fossil.
