I did a 9 day lower Grand Canyon raft trip with Arizona Raft Adventures AZRA. Put in at Pipe Creek Beach and take out at Diamond Creek. http://www.flickr.com/photos/7202153@N0 ... 146620156/

Deer Creek through narrows past Patio into camping area. (4 mi RT) (Neal stopped Matt & me from going farther) Brad pointed out some backpackers. I talked with them. Met the legendary Rich Rudow. His group of 6 including Steve(?) Ramras (RAM) had dropped in the East side of Fishtail Canyon this time. 5 raps longest about 95'. They were going up above Deer Creek to a dry lake to camp then going out Cranberry.
Kanab Creek (143.5)to uninspiring side canyon to Whispering Falls (6 mi RT)

Havasu Creek (156.75) to view of Upper Beaver Falls (did not cross on to Rez) back to Beaver Falls to frolic. (6 mi RT)
National Canyon (166.5) (1.5 RT) Shimmied up slot but route not clear. Neal told us to come back and pointed out where the route was and stopped Matt & me from going any farther) (hmmm . . . detecting a pattern here
Lava Scout (.5 RT) Neal did not have to pull Matt & me back, we were looking forward to Lava.
Manhole, Sculpture Garden and Pumpkin Spring (212) (.5 shuttle)
Put in at Pipe Creek, take out at Diamond Creek. Hybrid (paddle & Oar) with AZRA & the legendary Author/Historian Brad Dimock. Glad I had my NRS Work Boots. Did not need splash gear.
I think I've figured out how to do a Bass Trail Rim-to-Rim which will be my fourth different Rim-to-Rim. I'll call the other three the Corridor, the Upper, the Lower and this will be the Bass. Still trying to figure out the Horsethief Trail Rim-to-Rim - need to figure out how to put the pieces together and get it permitted.
Mileage is from Tom Martin's Book Day Hikes from the Colorado River (Third Edition) and memory.
