Headed down Hermit with Jamie and our two good friends KC and Clint for Earth day.

None of them had ever seen Sweetheart Spring so we went there first.

Then after gawking at the Coconino-Hermit contact we contoured down toward the Supai and out to a pretty "point" where we spotted Santa Maria Spring just below us.

From there we skipped merrily back to Hermit trail near Red Bud Cove and Hikes back up toward the rim after poking around Waldron for about half an hour.

Just below the rim Jamie and I led our friends down into a drainage and headed out to show them the "Four Sisters" and some of the "unidentified rusty crap" in the area.

We found glass insulators, beer cans, chew cans, wagon wheel, gasoline containers, something that looked like Fanta, a beanie from the late 90's?!, oh and a gorgeous collared lizard.

Score!

We then hiked out and got booze.

Tis a rough life, but someone must live it.
