This is the full experience of the Grand Canyon with a little Full Moon included. One of our favorite trips. If you are interested in an epic backpacking trip to the Canyon bottom and who want to see the Canyon without all the tourist’s this is the trip for you. The Grand Canyon boasts some of the best views in the Grand Canyon and follows the most moderate routes down and back up.
We’ll begin by hiking down to the Esplanade, a fantastic camp perched above the deeper layers of the Grand Canyon. From there we’ll hike past Thunder River (appropriately named as it literally erupts from the side of a mountain) and follow Tapeats Creek to the Colorado River. After traversing part of the Colorado River we’ll head back up Deer Creek, make camp, and explore its beautiful terraces, narrows, and the magnificent Deer Creek waterfall. The following two days will be spent returning to the North Rim. .
