On Foot: Grand Canyon Backpacking Stories Details

These are just six of the twenty-seven tales of adventure, discovery, danger, and deep solitude that await readers of this first-ever anthology of essays devoted to the Grand Canyon backpacking experience. In it, novice canyon hikers express their wide-eyed wonder, while veteran canyoneers reflect on how their lifelong relationship with the place has shaped their character and outlook. Rangers, trail crew workers, scientists, and trail guides weigh in with their unique perspectives. Whether they are writing from the corridor trails, the backcountry trails, or the vast canyon wilderness, these writers offer authentic, close-up views of what it is like to be afoot on particular days in particular places beneath the rim.

FEATURES

  • Bob Bordasch gives the anatomy of how not to hike the canyon, in his tale of a sun-blasted misadventure on the Deer Creek Trail.
  • Ranger Kristi Rugg recounts a soulful midnight hike in high summer up the South Kaibab, when exhaustion gives way to renewal.
  • D.J. Lee relates how a daughter and father see each other most clearly in a pivotal moment of shared danger on the Beamer Trail.
  • On a leisurely rim-to-rim-to-rim hike one fall, Molly Hollenbach attains deep insight into the inscrutable Vishnu Schist.
  • Twenty-three days into his long walk, Rick Dean is fully attuned to rock and river, crickets and scorpions, and other humans he encounters on the way.
  • After hundreds of the best days of his life in the canyon backcountry, Nic Korte finds himself on a moving slab of rock headed for a cliff, shouting, “No, no, no, no!”
