I just finished up with a super fun backpacking trip out on the Hermit trail. This picture shows the trail from the Cathedral Staircase, looking down upon the confluence of Hermit Creek and the Inner Gorge.
Stopping for a snack break on the saddle between Hermit and Monument, I snapped this shot looking back on Hermit rapid.
The wildflower are popping out like crazy now. I thought this shot scene with the beavertail in the foreground was stunning.
The young couple on the trip were really excited about getting down to the river. So, at our Salt Creek camp, four of us made the adventurous route down to the might Colorado, while two stayed back at camp.
It was an eye popping sunset for our dinner at Plateau Point -or as I like to call it, Chateau Plateau.
Leaving Indian Gardens, we had a nice cool start to the morning.
We made some new friends. Here is long time Flagstaff resident, Sue, sporting the Coconino Cycles tee shirt. It is good to hear Steve Garro is still putting together the best hand built bikes around.
We also saw some more familiar faces. No, this grainy photo isn't of Bigfoot, it's our good friend Gary. He must have made a wrong turn at Albuquerque and got on the train to the Grand Canyon. I can't even count how many trips this guy has done with us. He is so much fun to have around.
Four Season Guides is looking forward to seeing you this summer in Yosemite, Gary.
