  • Approximately 5 miles south of the Carl Hayden Visitor Center on U.S. Hwy 89, just south of highway marker 545, turn west on the dirt road which ascends the small hill. Drive a short distance west on the dirt road and park at the base of the hill. Climb up and down sandy hill.
    1.5 mile (2.4km) round-trip
Bright Angel Trail to Plateau Point

This 10.7-mile out-and-back dives more than 3,000 feet to a photogenic perch offering five-star views of the Colorado River and the second deepest canyon in the United States.

South Kaibab Trail to Bright Angel Trail

Trek to the bottom of the Grand Canyon on this 13.7-mile shuttle hike that tours rugged canyons, visits the Colorado River, and features stunning cliffside views.


Bye bye zion, hello Page, AZ

We packed up from the watchman campground and headed for a hike to lower emerald pools before a drive thru the tunnel. 


We thought about hitting vermillion / Pariya canyon to catch The Wave. But it was kind of out of the way without permits. 5 mile hike roughly 6hr… It would look a lot like valley of fire from day 1. Google it. 

Headed out to Glen Canyon Dam which was definitely a spectacle to see. 



After the dam, we headed out to Horseshoe bend for a magnificent sight! Worth it for sure!





 We looked for atv activities but couldn’t find any around the Page, AZ area… So we hit up a quality establishment… The Bowl! Pool, bowling, and fooseball!   

Liquor and ammo on that last pic. Need I say more?
