(Rescheduled) Presentation: Backpacking the Escalante Route in The Grand Canyon

My apologies, but I have to move this out a week. There is a scheduling conflict with the Inn. Thanks.

Backpacker Magazine has rated the Escalante Route the best backpack in the Grand Canyon. This 32-mile route offers of some of the most spectacular scenery in the Grand Canyon. The Escalante contours above the Colorado River from the Tanner Rapids to the Hance Rapids and is accessed from the Toto and Tanner Trails.

 

Bernard Tibbetts will describe the route, highlight points of interest including 75 Mile Canyon, the Papago Wall and the Unkar Delta and explain the logistics and planning for this trip.

Enjoy the photography. Get inspired.

Come early. Food will be served from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM before presentation.

    Thank you Bernard for creating such a wonderful presentation and also for providing snacks. I nearly felt like I was on the hike with the 3D technology and pictures.

    Bernard, very good presentation. Very smooth and effective delivery. I especially liked the use of Google Earth to outline the trails and key landmarks. And the overview of the rim amenities was extremely valuable. I was quite curious to your explanation of the Papago Wall and now feel very confident in our abilities. Kathleen and I had planned our camp stops for our Tanner/Grandview loop trek in April but after your presentation we now have a couple of things to re-consider. Looking forward to your next presentation subject.
