I just returned from a fabulous trip to Toroweap Overlook on the north side of the Grand Canyon. I was leading a charter group of folks who have been with me before on many excursions, backpacks and river trips in the southwest. This trip was coordinated through the Grand Canyon Field Institute, who I highly recommend for any of their educational classes at Grand Canyon.
The trip to Toroweap involved car camping and day hiking for four days and three nights. Have a look and learn some geology from this spectacular location.
We parked the truck and began our 600 foot climb up the loose cinders.
