On a recent backpacking trip to Phantom Ranch (Grand Canyon National Park), my lovely wife, Ryanne, suggested we make a day-hike up the Bonsai Route.
Our goal was to explore the Utah Flats area.

|Taking a break at the hard shade ledge. Angel's Gate in the distance|
|Looking up at Piano Alley, from the saddle.|
|Looking down through Piano Alley. The Colorado River looks so small from here.|

|Here is a sweet little point that I found. Maybe you will find it, too.|
|You can see the Clear Creek Trail, on the left, and the South Kaibab Trail, on the right. In between is the Colorado River.|
