We spent the weekend camped on the rim and decided to duck into Bear Canyon for a few miles to stretch our legs on Saturday. The water was pleasant and the terrain was fairly easygoing. None of the boxes required swimming, with just one where tippytoes couldn't keep the boys dry. The ladies turned around and headed back while the rest of us continued downstream. The geology was superior after our group split, but we learned later that the girls won the day with a canyon namesake sighting and a short standoff with one of the dogs :o

We climbed out at a spot that in real life didn't quite match up with how easy it looked on the topo. We dropped down to Aspen Spring for a snack and headed up the trail for a couple of easy miles before making another steep canyon crossing to get back to our camp.
