1st trip
One of the best trips of my life. I had always wanted to visit the grand canyon and hike it, but I've heard so many stories about how challenging it is that I was actually getting a bit of an unreasonable fear about the whole thing. So I was thrilled when Rob and Mark invited me to go on their trip in December.

----Summary----
DAY 1
Hermit trail head to junction with the Boucher trail 2.7 mi.
Boucher trail to Yuma point 2.5 mi
Yuma Point to Boucher Camp sites 4.1 mi
Camped at Boucher Camp sites

DAY 2
Boucher Camp sites along Boucher Creek to Boucher Rapids at Colorado River 1.5 mi
Boucher Rapid to Tonto trail junction 2 mi
Tonto Trail to the Hermit creek 1.2 mi
Hermit Creek to Hermit Rapids 1.5
Camped at Hermit Rapids

DAY 3
Hermit Rapids to Hermit Trail head 9.7 mi

Highlights:
I loved the view at Yuma point
Descending the redwall made me pee my pants a little
I loved camping at Boucher Camp -- perfect spot for base camp
I loved camping at the river shore at Hermit Rapids
The view from the top of the cathedral stairs was awesome!

One of my favorite trips ever!
The Hermit creek gorge was amazing
