Connie and I have been home now for 10 days and can’t stop thinking about our trip down to the bottom of the canyon. We had a wonderful time! I would have to say the number one thing that made the trip so great was your guides David Logan and Taylor Branch. Over a year ago we looked into just hiking down to Phantom Ranch and stay there in one of the national park facilities. I’m so glad we did not get a reservation. If we would have done the trip ourselves we would have missed so much what the canyon has to offer. Your guides are very knowledgeable about the canyon. On our decent down they pointed out things we would have just walked by. At the bottom, we did day hikes and explored washes and other canyons which took me out of my comfort zone. We had to swim at one point going up Phantom canyon and Connie and I had no idea how much fun it could be. The other thing was the meals that David prepared each day! Can skip the steak dinner or beef stew at the ranch. David’s meals were all different, filling, delicious and creative. On our way back up we explored other canyons and really enjoyed Indian Garden and Plateau Point for sunset. The final ascent can be challenging but was done at a steady pace and again pointing out things we would have walked right by.
Your guides provided me the opportunity to shoot many photos and were willing to rise very early and guide us to points for photo opportunities. Connie and I have hiked in the Canadian and Colorado Rockies, the Andes in Peru and Chile and would say that this trip ranks as a top five! In the future should anyone have questions about your trips, you can use our names as a reference. I would highly recommend your company!
Thanks again Brian. It was the best!
