Buck farm always intrigued me because of the routefinding challenges outlined in Grand Canyoneering. Friday night we dropped a car off at the Saddle Mountin TH and camped at the buck farm overlook to get an early start - due to the concern about getting to the river before dark. We had a dawn start and made our way thru the Kaibab. It wasn't too bad - we were all able to do the 8 foot downclimb withoug much issue. Finally made it to the main fork and almost immediately climbed out and hiked around to the head of the "left fork". Getting thru the Supai was supposed to be a major challenge, but hiking aroiund to the head of the canyon and traversing a few ledges made quick work of the layer. Then down the "left fork" to the top of the redwall narrows. We then switched to the main "right fork" and hit the drop in. We suited up as it looked like water was unavoidable. The redwall narrows were spectacular, though way too short and we soon found our selves at the confluence of the forks - after 5 rappels. the rest of the way to the river was thru beautiful Muav narrows with lots of water and several downclimbs - and a couple rappels. We made it to the river before dark and were joined by a rafing party that we socialized with.
Day #2. We had 11 river miles to the Nankoweap trail. Our permit allowed us to packraft from Pres. Harding Rapid to Nankoweap, so we hiked the first three miles along the river. the first 2 - 2.5 miles weren't too bad, there was a fairly good trail. the last .5 to a mile was a thrash and we were glad to get in our boats. The stretch from Pres. Harding to Nankoweap had several riffles - I portaged one rapid and one other riffle. After taking out at Nankoweap Rapid, we hiked the 3 miles and camped along Nankoweap creek where the trail leaves the creek.

Day 3 - out the Nankoweap trail. Pretty still with all the weight - packrafts, technical gear, ropes etc. Took us 8 hours to get out. then the almost 8 hour drive back to Tucson for me.

Another canyon that I hadn't done for years. Really fun. The hike up Sterling was a bit scratchy, but short at least. Great day.

I had done this several years ago and didn't remember much about it. This is definitely the time to do it. Tons of fall colors and we only had one or two wades. no swimmers. wore my 4/3 wetsuit because of the air temps, but was never cold. Knocked it out in better than expected time.
