We started down the switchbacks at 6:30 pm and arrived at the campground at around 9:30 pm. The hike in was pretty easy since we didn't have to deal with the sun. I have never been here and I thought the place was beautiful. However, from what others have told me, the new campground looks pretty desolate. Nonetheless, I can see why Edward Abbey spent 35 days here by himself. It was hot, and we spent a lot of time in the water. The hike out wasn't too bad for the first 9 miles. The night we hiked out, we didn't leave the campground until 6:30 pm. Again, we didn't have the sun and it wasn't too bad until we hit the switchbacks. Going up the switchbacks was slow and brutal, but we made it. It was almost 10 pm when we got to the top. I already can't wait to go back. Next time I think I will have a mule bring in lots of good food, that way I can spend more time down in there.
