1st trip
The purpose of this hike was to knock out the Waldron Trail which I haven't done before. Now I've done almost all the South Rim named trails. Just need the lower section of South Bass (below the Tonto junction), Great Thumb Route, and Havasu Creek from Beaver Falls to the Colorado River.

Started down Hermit :next: up Waldron :next: unnamed rim trail to Boundary Line Road :next: down Silver Bell Trail (aka Dripping Springs Trail but I call it what the guy who built it called it) :next: back up Hermit :next: Rim trail to Mohave point.

Checked out Sweetheart Spring just a couple hundred yards north of the Hermit trail, at the Coconino/Hermit contact. Also checked out the 4 sisters near Hermit Trail.

The grass at the bottom was moist but overall the tank was dry. A dead elk was right next to it.
