As you can read from the triplogs on this same date, we had a great time. This was my first public HAZ event and I'd like to thank everyone for making it awesome!! Big thanks to John for suggesting I open up this permit on HAZ and special thanks to chumley for 1) the VitiWaters on the trail, 2) making me carry 40lbs of extra water and 3) driving out GimpyHaley at the end.

I honestly didn't think many would sign up for the trip...what kind of psychos would wanna suffer through 26+ miles of boring, water-less, rocky double track on TOP of a Grand Canyon plateau?

Was great meeting Wendy and Frank - I'll hold a couple of dear memories of each; Wendy and her delightful manner of peeing only a bush or two away from me....TWICE (curse that peripheral vision) :oops: !! and Frank - - how 'Kevin Bacon' that there were TWO tiny degrees of separation on a couple of wild coincidences between us...crazy!

To any planning a trip out to this Cape...here is some sage advice:
1) 1/2 way across, never tip-toe into the Rez side of the fence...hike north along the park fence-line till you pick up the trail again about 50 yards north.
2) bring vehicle support/spare tires if chancing the rocky road down to trailhead
3) bring plenty of water/cache
4) best camping is the southeast depression about 1/4 mile from rim...
5) beware of veggies who hike with prunes
