Our Southrn Nevada Group Sierra Club has one space left for an April 16 - 22 Grand Canyon back packing trip. We'll mainly be on the Hermit trail ending at the Bright Angel from Indian Gardens to the South Rim trail on the last day's backpack.

Leave me a PM if interested. The fee is $45.

I can pick you up and drop you off at the 'Vegas airport.

Eric

Darn, I'm going to miss you by a week!! I'll be there the 11th-15th. I have to be at a race in Vegas on the 17th. I did that hike in '08 and had a great time. Indian Gardens was a bit crowded but no one goes on the main corridor trails in April for solitude!!!

I had the Tonto almost all to myself the day before IG.

Have a great time!!!!

Thanks! I think the Hermit Trail will help us avoid the damn mule trains and give us great vistas.
