I had previous plans with the Frick to do some Grand Canyon hiking but he wasn't feeling so hot and cancelled on me. Probably a good thing because my knee is still not right and our planned hike would have certainly put the hurts on it. Anyway I had already booked a hotel room at the Grand Canyon and hated to forfeit.

I hit up JohnLP to see if he would like to head up and do the Tanner Trail to the river and back. He was in so bam we were off. Upon arriving at the Grand Canyon we decided to have a bite at the Maswick Pizza Hub. I text the Hippy to say hi and next thing you know it was HAZ Fest 2013 there. In all there were 8 HAZers at our table in short order. Good stuff and nice to see everyone as always.


Todays hike started off real bad for me with knee problems. The rough terrain was putting a beating on the knee and I wasn't sure I was going to make it to the river. After a couple miles it leveled out (thankfully) and I was okay the rest of the way. At the river I caught up to John and we headed back up together.

It wasn't a solid performance for either of us but we made it fine and I certainly enjoyed the trail. Very surprised by the great condition of it and how few people use it. We only saw two on the trail and one and the river.

I will be back to do this one again for sure! Good stuff.
