Anyone on here been to the Toroweap/Tuweep area of the Grand Canyon NP?
Is it possible to find a spot to hang from a hammock there?
How are the current conditions in the area and how's the road currently?
I've got to go out to Las Vegas from my company's Nat'l Sales Meeting in early August and I'm heading out a few days early. My plan is to rent a SUV (Ford Escape) and drive out to the Grand Canyon NP to do some photography for a few days before my meeting starts. I really would like to go to this area but I'm a little concerned about the drive out to Toroweap/Tuweep. I've read up on what to expect and I'm a little hesitant to go through with this idea. I'm not worried about the lack of facilities and I'll pack in what I need for just an overnight. What really concerns me is the road and the likelihood of getting a few flat tires. One I could deal with but I would rather not have any. Plus with a rental I can not be certain that I will have a full size spare.
Any help or input would be much appreciated. Thanks!
PS: I know it will be hot so I expect that. Just understand that I live in the midlands of SC where today the heat index will be upwards of 110. When it is hot here it's HOT plus the humidity makes it feel like a wet oven.
