This was a hike from a river camp called "Upper Nevills," just above Nevills Rapid. We hiked up Seventy-five Mile Canyon to the Escalante Route trail. Walking along the trail, we went out to the rim of the platform it's on and got a nice view of Nevills Rapid, and up and down the gorge. Since I have hiked the Escalante Route, I had been to that canyon before.

It was just a quick afternoon hike. I had to get back to camp to help with cooking dinner for 27 people--this was a commercial river trip. I thought I had GPS'd the hike. (In fact, I thought I had GPS'd all of the hikes on my trip, but some of them are missing.) Oh, well. Looking at the map, I guesstimated the distance and elevation gain.

Some of our guests went further up the canyon after topping over the ledge and said there was a nice waterfall there, but I was on dinner duty that night. My notes say that I made apple crisp in the Dutch oven. Yum! I do remember making the apple crisp, but I didn't write down what else we cooked for dinner.

It was a remarkably nice camp, in the trees. It had been pretty windy, with some rain, and we were tired of the wind, and were glad to fit our many tents into small spaces amongst the tamarisk trees.
