HAZ Trivia says there are 30 Grand Canyons in the US or something like that. I forget the number. But 9L is on a mission to hike in all of them. (Is it a mapped area yet? :-k )

I knew nothing about this one so I wasn't particularly excited about it. Consider me converted! :y:

I'm happy to have posted a GPS track that lists many of the available sites for camping that I saw as we passed. This would have been useful information for us to have ahead of time, and I hope those who follow find it beneficial for them.

Not much to add to what 9L put in his triplog. It was a beautiful trip. Great trails, unbelievable views. Endless water. Basically an absolutely incredible top-10 backpacking trip.

Yosemite and the Sierra have yet to let me down. I might have to go back sometime! ;)

Might have this confused with Dingley. Either way, both were dry.

I think this was dry. There was an earthen crossing and it wasn't even marshy around it.

Possibly medium. Tough to say since I have no perspective. I've seen photos of it raging. Needless to say, there was no shortage of water, falls, or swimming all the way to Hetch Hetchy.
