  • Another fishing trip ......

    I just completed yet another fishing trip. I had a young crew (19, 23, & 29) so after work (and occasionally during work) we cooled down in the water, as the weather was hot (around 100 F). I spent some time sitting in a natural jacuzzi massaging my old bones & muscles.

    Also, we had a Western tanager visit camp. Generally they are at much higher altitudes, but this one came to the bottom of the canyon. The pic isn't very good, sorry.

      Hi Jim - Not quite as hot as where you are but with the afternoon temperatures here in Central Mexico touching the 90's F those pools certainly look inviting!
      I really ought to find time to escape north of the border for a few days and check out one of your fishing trips. I'd be in heaven!
      Maybe sometime next year...

          Jerry -- not many people get to see this place, and I've not seen it in AZ highweighs. (misspelling intentional) yet. And I'd prefer not to have it become a major destination. We did see more hikers this trip than I've ever seen before, so it is starting to get popular.

          Jim & Trout -- we do use a few volunteers. It is always fun to share the spot with first-timers who are awestruck. That keeps it fresh and exciting for me. I was on several trips as a volunteer before I managed to get them to hire me on as an intermittent employee who only does field work. Sometimes dreams do come true.

            You need to get rid of the kids and put some of us old folks to work. That natural jacuzzi looks perfect!

              I'd love to take more older folks along. The kids are self-centered, unmotivated and don't have a good work ethic. And they fail to appreciate the beauty around them. It really makes me appreciate maturity. The two retired folks I had in April outworked the 3 kids on this last trip.

                I know you have said it before but could you give us your location. Just left Az a couple months ago and going back in Nov.

                  Chuck -- It is the Little CO Rver. It is about halfway between Lee's Ferry (where most of the raft trips leave) and Phantom Ranch (where the mule trains take folks from the South Rim Visitor's Center). It is a difficult hike in with a lot of exposure (places where you can fall to your death) so most folks who hike there are committed backpackers. The access requires permits from the Navajo's because it is reservation land.

                  I'm a bit concerned about making searchable links, as there are more and more hikers who have little respect for some of the essential supplies we stash down there with the permission of the tribe.

                    I have a good idea where from your description. My Bride and I were planing on the hike when we ran out of time. Had to meet friends in Zion.
                    Here is a picture of where we were near Lee's Ferry when we decided to go on. Guess you can't go every where.

                        That looks like Cancun. Send me a PM if you don't want every one to know the exact spot. I won't be back there for a while anyway. Thanks anyway.

                          As always, I loved your pictures. Thanks for taking us along on your adventure! I would love the natural Jacuzzi.

                            I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                            I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                            First off how thick is the board you cut?
                            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                            Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                            Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
