As part of a Tanner - Escalante - Tonto - Miners - Grandview backpack.
Weather was, for the most part blustery but warm - not much rain fell, so it made for near-perfect GC hiking conditions. Excluding 1 mile from each trailhead we saw but 3 hikers the whole while... nothing like 'winter' in the Canyon for thinning the herd - gotta like it.
Route is seeing much more travel as there is much more foot-travel evident than in years past. While Tanner is notoriously rough in spots it does not seem to have worsened in the last few years. Tonto was a breeze and Miners(Page) although steep, is in good shape. Grandview is in really good shape. No snow/ice present. (Note date of triplog - your results may vary).

"The censorship method ... is that of handing the job over to some frail and erring mortal man, and making him omnipotent on the assumption that his official status will make him infallible and omniscient."
