nice pics. looks like a fun trail to have in your backyard. some friends of mine are doing r2r2r in March and your pics give a good picture of just how daunting a trip that would be. maybe i'll go along and just do r2river2r! Smile

@ 666- nope, i wont get tired of it. Ive only done 4 trails in the canyon. And only gone as far as Ribbon Falls (that was 32 round trip)  theres lots of other trails I have yet to check out. I'm thinking of going to the other side in a week or 2. On monday im going to Cottonwood camp, thats past ribbon falls, but a few miles (6 i think?) from the top of the other side. Anywho...Yes ill put up pix when its all snowy, if it gets snowy! Its been 55-60 degrees here with no rain or snow at all forcast for the whole month
