Had a few things I wanted to accomplish for this trip: check out the cave that JJ found below a certain temple that I don't want to name online and be put on some government list, find a rare agave (agave phillipsiana) found in Phantom Canyon and just 3 other places in GCNP, finish off the River Trail (I had never done the section between the bridges), check out a ruin in the area that I had just read about, and, if I had enough time, climb up to Cheops Pyramid. Happily I was able to check off 4 out of the five.

Went down BA trail the first day and stayed at BA campground. The nights are long in the canyon this time of year and I was asleep by 6pm :o Thankfully my noisey neighbors made sure I didn't get too much sleep. Next day went up to Utah Flats and then explored around Phantom and Haunted Canyons. Spent a cold night (21 degrees) below Cheops. Hiked out on the 3rd day.
