Grand Canyon 2006

Was invited to hike the Canyon by a random group. Unfortunately, I didn’t document much at the time, but I did manage to save these photos. I do remember that the night before the hike we stayed at a hotel in Flagstaff. Waking up early to get on the road we walked to the parking lot to see our vehicle with all doors wide open; someone didn’t lock the car and it was cleaned out. Luckily most of our gear had been brought with us into the hotel room, but a few things were lost including a digital camera, some trekking poles, and my boots.

But hell, we were on a tight schedule and the Grand Canyon has no compassion for man’s folly. I ended up doing the trip in Chacos and regret nothing more than not taking a single picture of my feet.
