I had the great oppurtunity to spend my last two trips with Sparkie, a dynamite little gal  from Hawaii.  We hiked all the way down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon with a couple of buddies from Tennesee.   It was great.  The biggest snow storm of the year and we were staying inside at the Phantom Ranch backpacker dorms. Here is a view from the tunnel to the Black Bridge.

This shot looks out and across the Bright Angel Trans-canyon fault.  A freak March storm dropped over a foot on the rim.

After our Phantom Ranch trip, Sparkie and I said farewell to our Southern friends.  We then met up with a couple of spring breakin' teachers for a few days of fun in the sun -Havasu Falls style.  The wildflowers are just now starting to pop out.  Here is a Cardinal Monkeyflower standing proud in the middle of Havasu Creek. 
A great big THANK YOU to Sparkie and everyone else who made these trips so special.  I hope to see you all for more hiking fun, in the future.
