Re: AZT in a Day!

I've signed up for section 20, Gordon Hirabayashi to Cathedral Rock, since there was only one other person doing this section. But it is unclear to me if I am suppose to do something, like send an email to somebody, when I'm done. Does anybody have any insight into this? There will be a completion ...

There was a high school senior who hiked it, the name escapes me now.

IMO, a 3L water bladder empty won't do you any good at all, especially if the water situation is "iffy"...Fill it up, but carry as much as you feel comfortable carrying, tho I'd recommend a minimum of 3L. ;-)

Re: Supai Horse Abuse to be Prosecuted

All that being said, there is no excuse for animal abuse. And even if the horses were just owned by one guy, and he was charged and sent to court, the abuse of his horses was reported by tourists, not by other tribal members, who surely knew of it. Unfortunately, the abused horses are not just owne...

And none of this matters if you are stuck in a storm in the Grand Canyon...it has it's own rules. ;)

Are there any recommendations for a waterproof camera? I've had a couple of the older Pentax ones (w20, I think, and w80) and was not pressed with either. I want one for an upcoming rafting trip. I have a Canon Powershot SX260HS that I'm happy enough with for dry conditions, though I find the GPS to...
