Did the hike down at about 11:30 not too hot, but just about perfect to get into the cool water waiting below...WAY BELOW.. It is very steep but nothing that cant be done with a 40+ pound pack on. (I always pack too much haha) Got down to the creek about an hour or so later, and I was the first one to get in a little deeper than I wanted to. After a few falls, mishaps and bushwacking we got to our camp about three miles in. Set up camp did a little more exploring and settled in for the night. My legs and one persons lack of food forced us to cut the trip from two nights to one. Hiked up and out the following day after some debate on how long we wanted to stay. This is a great canyon and we all wished we could have stayed longer. So much to see and explore, but thats the reason for trips back right? lots of good elevated camps all along the way. We will definitely be back for another round. The hike back up the canyon wall to the trail head was not very fun for me at all. Took me about an hour and a half to make it up. Of course all that means is that I need to get out more.
