I haven't posted in a while because I have been mountain biking a lot more than trailrunning and hiking (4th right meniscus surgery has force that) but I am going to try and put a few of my big hikes on here. Last Sunday, I drove up with 3 friends to say my temporary good-byes to the Grand Canyon (I am moving to Arkansas is a couple weeks). I decided I wanted to do a non-corridor trail that I had not done before so we pick Grandview Trail to Horseshoe Mesa. Great hike and I love the area though August probably isn't the best month to explore. I would love to backpack down there for a few days to really experience. Very steep trail and more technical than the corridor trails but loved hiking the Canyon without the crowds. Did not see one person once we left the rim. See my 3 minute video of our trip below.

This was such a special trail run. So incredible beautiful. I truly enjoyed the tranquility and isolation. Amazing loop.

After deciding Angel's Landing was going to be to much for the group, we went and explored Emerald Pools. Neat area. See 4 minute video below of the entire trip.

With John and Mike when out on Turnbuckle then went south on an old jeep trail and scrambled up an off trail peak. Then went back in the park did a peak and went down the Mountain Wash. The poppies were amazing.

I went out and putzed around at Estrella before the rain. I was actually planning to get rained on which is always fun but as I was getting to the end, I hurried back to the truck since I had not got wet yet. Within 30 seconds of getting in the truck, it started to come down hard. Beautiful day.

Out with John, out on Quartz Mine, up Crest Summit, then back on Skyline Crest. Best time since knee surgery but still feel so sluggish.
