Grand Gulch 2016
Day 4 - May 11

Step Canyon to Pollys Canyon

Long House Ruin

Continuing on down Grand Gulch from Step Canyon, the going got a little easier than the death march of the previous day. Highlights of the day included exploring the Long House ruin, as well as the Big Man and Dead Spar Knoll pictograph panels.

Our fourth camp was at Polly's Canyon in a grove of giant cottonwoods. Unlike the previous camp, there was a large pool of water at the mouth of Polly's. Mileage for the day was 6.7 miles.

Note photo takers are given in the titles under the thumbnails.

Kickass Trekkers on this trip were: Bill Mooseker, Shelby Stong, Mike Stong, Madison Stong, Fred Stong, and Cindy Stong.

The descriptions under the photo thumbnails in the album sometimes contain links to maps or additional information. These are identified by "Blue” text for links. I've also inserted links to Google Maps to show where certain photos in the album were taken or to locate features shown in the photos. Click on the link, close the sidebar, and choose satellite view. Basically, you can then zoom in and out using the mouse wheel or drag the map by clicking and holding.

For panoramic photos, I would recommend clicking on the thumbnail photo to enlarge. View at original size for most detail. The thumbnails do not do justice to petroglyphs and pictographs, so I would recommend enlarging them as well. Please take the time to view the many videos to better experience what it was like to be there.

Soon after leaving our camp at Step Canyon, the trail along the wash leads to a drop off that forces us to backtrack aways and go over the bench at the inside of the bend.

Bill taking a break at Cow Tank Canyon - I didn't have the energy to go up to see the panel. I regret it now, but we still had a long way to go.  While we were waiting, a large group of students (9th graders) from a private school from Boise came by and we chatted a while with them. It was interesting to see them pumping water for their bottles as every one had their own filter pump.
