If you're looking for a challenge, join the GCFI five-day backpack to Clear Creek Canyon from the Grand Canyon's South Rim. Two leaders guided us as we walked, pointing out Canyon geology, zoology, plant forms and history, including what is known about ancient peoples. Sighting a condor, they discussed the program reintroducing this magnificent bird to California. We talked about who built the South Kaibab trail, and why. And so forth, along the route. Stopping at Phantom Ranch we set up a comfortable camp and continued to tell stories. Who built the stone cabins at Bright Angel Creek? Who introduced the mules? For anyone interested in getting to know this area deeply, and for those looking to see if they can handle a hike of 45 miles or so with 4500 ft of elevation loss, and gain, this hike offers an unparalleled adventure.
