WOW what a weekend!! Everything is always better while in the wilderness but to be in the presence of one of the Natural wonders of the world its all the more special! My friends and I met with 9L and Chumley at the Hance Creek campground, we took the Grandview route instead. Once we set up camp we all took off on an awesome and challenging adventure down Hance Creek to the Sockdolager Rapid. While on our way down we had to bypass a couple obstacles which made this day hike all but more challenging. Im all about the scrambling and climbing and the three bypasses were definitely a welcomed addition to the days' adventure! This was my third trip to the Grand Canyon altogether and first to the Colorado River (while in the GC). Every second we spent relaxing by the river was well worth all the effort it took to get there. It was cool to see a group of rafters passing by just as we were getting to the river. Eventually we made our way back to camp and enjoyed a few cold ones thanks to Hance Creek and talked about the day's adventure. It was a great relaxing evening, with "good" camping food and the short visit by some neighbors that were backpacking in the Grand Canyon and then moving on to other NPs along the western part of the USA. The next morning we took care of camp and left a little bit later after John and Todd, we took the normal way out back to the rim, it took us five hours to make it back! Cant wait for the next Grand Canyon adventure, sucks its starting to get a bit too hot to be down in the canyon and will probably have to wait til the end of summer to make it happen again. In the meantime theres plenty of other places AZ has to offer during the hot summer months!
