Another Great trip in the Grand Canyon. Our group shrank to 4(Preston,Dave,Bruce and I) on the last week :( so I shot Hippy a PM to see if she wanted to hike and or shuttle us. It was last minute but she came through(THANKS) with a shuttle/hiker. We meet Frank a little before 8AM at Grandview and headed to New Hance to start by 8AM. Our prayers were answered and we had great weather all day. Hiking down Red Canyon is real treat. We took our time and we hit Hance Rapids around noon and took our lunch there. Awesome lunch spot. From there it was on to check off another section of the Tonto Trail. Awesome views with lots of blooms made it a real treat. We took a break in Hance Creek and Preston(THANKS) filtered until we all were set for the rest of the hike. We were doing good but beating darkness would be close. It's hard to go fast in such an awesome place. I hit a wall with 2+ miles to go and threw up. Preston and Bruce kept me motivated while Dave skipped the rest of the way up and hitchhiked to get the car. They can't resist him. Frank was exploring a little more and Dave already had the car so we didn't need the shuttle. we only had to use are headlamps for an hour or so. Topped out about 8:30PM. From there we followed Frank over to Maswik for a quick bite and share hiking stories. Nice to meet and hike with Frank. From there it was just a short 4 and a half hour drive home.What a great trip! Thanks for the hike Gentlemen, like HAZ, You all rock!
