The three of us made an overnight trip down to Granite Rapid. We drove up on Friday night and stayed with Haley (Thanks!). We started down on Saturday and made smooth and steady progress. There were several groups along the hike. We knew it was going to be a busy weekend. We arrived at Granite Rapid to find two other backpacking groups and some rafters. We wanted our space and considered hanging out below the rapid but the wind was too strong. It even blew Chumley's tent away...luckily he was able to chase it down. After that we went over to the rafters above the rapid and asked to crash in their vicinity. There was plenty of room for everybody and they were very hospitable.

We woke fairly early on Sunday. The wind was really whipping and made hanging out a bit uncomfortable. We decided to pack up early and start the hike out. Chumley went up ahead as Rachel and I finished packing. From there we started making our way out and threw on headphones to help grind through the misery. We caught up with Chumley along the Supai and passed several groups also making their way out. The final push to the rim was a grind but flew by. This was a really great trip and I'm glad everything worked out leading up to this backpack.
