A great deal of the hike is on the rim of the gorge, not too difficult. We'd love to have you. We generally break up into groups based on varying speeds on the trail. Medicine Man is slow and steady but he always gets there! In camp we all hang out (literally) and check out one another's rigs and simply have fun.
Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.
