Checked the weather and the webcams and all looked clear for a down (SK) to the river and back up (BA) day trip. I did not however, check the shuttle restrictions for November and missed the last bus from the backcountry office as I was waiting at a different bus stop. Decided to just go down and up BA instead. I also was not prepared for the trail conditions. The webcams do not show the ice on the first mile or so down BA. Spikes are recommended. Just below the Supai, the snow and ice finally gave way. Surprisingly very few people headed down. After the switchbacks down the redwall, there was a steady steam of backpackers making their way up and out. Very few people at the point. Didnt know about the treasures below, will have to make another trip for that. Made it from IG to the BA TH in 2hr 15 mins, completely demolishing my time last year of over 4 hours :lol:
