Pelican Case is definitely the #1 option. All of the others will work too. I used to be a guide down there and I can assure you you will have the camera out while you are on the water. There is a ton of flat water that provides time for photography. Its own padded case in an ammo can should suffice ...

Pakak and I will be at the TH by 8 as well. We have a stock Cherokee, so if the road is any rougher than the road to Tortilla TH we will be on foot the last bit. Can't wait.

My wife and I would like to go. We visited the well known ruin in November on a West Pinto to Peralta hike.
Will there be a carpool or meet at the TH? My guess is we would go in Rogers' Trough. Please elaborate on the logistics so we can figure out when we need to leave Tucson. Thanks.

I am interested in going up to the Rincons or Catalinas and am available the last three weekends of April. Have done Douglas Spring, Manning Camp and Happy Valley Saddle as overnighters already this season. The Superstitions may be a little hot for my taste by now, but never say never. I think it wo...

We were there last year in November. The pool is shallow but definately soakable, and the water is hot. Highly recomended.

It seems to me that everyone that has chimed in has developed their opinions one way, and that is by hiking. I have been hiking quite a bit over many years and have hiked in everything from flip flops to light mountainering boots. I suggest going to REI and trying on at least 5 pair of different sho...

It doesn't seem like there is much interest in doing this. I have about 3 more weeks to generate some interest before I give the dates back to the river company. This is a great opportunity for hikers that have never been on a Grand Canyon river trip, or hikers that have but wish they could have don...

The idea that Phoenix is more centrally located is a no-brainer, just look at the map. Getting to the Grand Canyon and N Az is quicker, but the proximity to the Tonto NF is Phx's biggest asset. But what Tucson has, in spades, are peaks. Lots of people from Phoenix and points north haven't checked ou...

Re: Lesser Known Points

In response to PageRob's reply: Swamp Point and Crazy Jug Point are great. Take 22A and explore all the side roads. Lots of cool spots. East of 67 Marble View Point is cool but my wife was just there and said the trees have grown since we were last there about 8 years ago so the views are somewhat ...

Dates for Hiker's Special GC River Trip

I am back from a river trip and have concrete info on the 'hikers special" for next year. This trip is specifically designed for HAZ members to maximize hiking time, and to hike places that are very difficult to reach from the rim. We need 12 people to go, but can take up to 18. Since this will be f...

Great, I am hoping to gain some interest so that I can get the spots lined up. A standard commercial trip just doesn't have the time to do a lot of substantial hikes. Besides the typical river trip has such a wide variety of fitness and hiking experence levels that some of the more sporty hikes are ...

RedRoxx, we saw you at Powers Garden last spring (05). In the brief conversation we had, you laid out a fantastic route that you had done. I think the the biggest problem for you is finding partners that could keep up and enjoy it. You do some awesome hikes.

Hiker's Special GC River Trip

I am leaving for a GC river trip on Sat., swamping a commercial trip. I used to guide and still like to work one every now and again. Swamping is so much better because I don't get the stress of taking the paying customers through the nasties (Hance, Crystal, and Lava). I am wondering if there is in...

I agree with the sentiment that solo hiking is a little scary. Everything is a little bigger, steeper, and wilder. This is especially noticeable off-trail. On well maintained trails in a familiar area it is no big deal, but when you give a sigh of relief for 100 yards of faint game trail as a reprie...
