FFFFIIIIINNNNAALLLLLYYYYYYY??????????? scored a permit for "The Wave" 5-6 years of trying , online and in person. I think personally I submitted 35-40 times and my hiking partner Greg probably put in close to that. we always each tried for 2 spots on each submission, and of course one of the guys we met at The Wave said he was just in the area and thought he would try the in person lottery. (it was the first time he ever tried) :pout: . Glad its done it was worth the wait. Greg and I chose to stay after dark and enjoy the solitude we left about 9:00 , got back to the Car at about midnight. it was tough going in the dark even with GPS, if you got off the trail by even a little bit you can find yourself high or low on a cliff side that calls for backtracking or guessing, it was hot and there was lots of very loose sand on steep hills that would light your calves on fire, but nothing we havent done before except that each year we keep getting older :worthy: After that day we went off into the Parashant area exploring lots of areas we had never seen, up over mount Trumbull, saw a bunch of turkeys up by the old sawmill sight, we crossed the ridge and stopped at the old school house and then headed south toward Whitmore overlook into the Grand Canyon. we passed the Bar ten dude ranch which we didnt even know was there. Whitmore overlook was a fun new view of the grand canyon, we didnt have time to walk down to the river, in the heat if would have been a long trip in full sun, I wont bore you with a million photos just a few of the good ones. Great trip well worth a several day trip and maybe combining it with a stop at Toroweap Overlook
