Episode 11: The Grand Canyon the good the bad the ugly

In this podcast we share 5 important tips on what you should know before backpacking down into the Grand Canyon. People often make mistakes when underestimating just how hard the hike will be. Especially if you are backpacking to the Colorado River.

First: Always refer to the Grand Canyon NPS site for info and permits before you go. Plan and Prepare is the key. It’s your responsibility to make sure you understand everything that there is to know about the Grand Canyon before you assume anything.

Second: Just because you are going with a guided service, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do your due diligence.

What we talk about:

  • Ariane talks about how small you become when you are in the Grand Canyon
  • Scott & Ariane explains what caching your water means and why
  • 1 mile per hour is about average
  • Surprise Valley…it’s a surprise
