I have been hearing stories from Denny about this hike for quite a while now. Unfortunately the Turtle couldn't join us due to injury. Pictures can't do justice to many of the sights along the way. Seeing is believing. :)

Wally picked me up at 3 AM, then Dave and Joe, and we were on our way to the north rim and adventure in the Grand Canyon. We saw two large groups of turkeys, as well as deer, on the forest roads leading to the trailhead.

Expansive views dominate the Bill Hall trail in contrast to the limited views of the North Kaibab. Very nice to see some new country for me. The steep downhill to Deer Creek with a pack on is tough on the joints, but we all survived it in good spirits.

All the main attractions delivered on this hike. Deer Spring, The Patio, Deer Creek Falls, Tapeats Creek and Cave, Thunder River... Everything in between is pretty cool too.

Thanks to Dave for setting this one up and inviting me, even after I turned him down last year, and thanks to Wally for driving. Thanks Joe for all the nonsense that flows nonstop out of your pie hole. Many laughs. Great group, great trip. :y:
