Layover #5: Mesa Hike

written Mar 8, 2018 @ 02:58 AM after hiking 0.00 miles

Another layover day, another day of hiking. This time, JB and I hiked to the top of this mesa that was near camp, about 2,000 feet up. Let the pictures roll!

About a third of the way up, JB turns to look back at the river

I saw this plant with these crazy leaves and I really liked them

Looking out over the landscape (almost to the top)

We made it!

At the top, it was as expected: a big mesa with sheer drops down to the river (more or less) and really great views across the interior of the Canyon

Don't look down!

Looking downriver

After a bit, JB and I headed back, hoping to get back in time for showers (while the sun was up) and some games of Spades.

Look at this perfect "nil" hand, totally ruined by that damn Ace

After an unbelievable game of Spades (which Jon & I won), the evening routine kicked in.

Yep, gotta have a fire.
