At Mammoth the river is nearly always dry, so I'd bet my next paycheck it's dry now. I used to drive between Tucson and Springerville several times a year. I was always amazed that even if we were h ...

I don't think I'll be doing the Canyon this year, but I do have a lottery application in right now for 2015 for a private river running permit in Grand Canyon. The drawing is tomorrow (Feb. 25). I p ...

Same to you! I am mostly kayaking and biking these days, until I can get a foot issue resolved.

Which ledge? We did that short rappel, which, all things considered, was one the easier parts of that hike! There were the Moki Steps and there was the 1000 year old ladder to climb down as well. ...

Yes, some people do hike that loop when on a river trip. It means the boatmen have to sit around all day long, though. Not fun for them. The boats have to be moved downstream so the hikers can do t ...
