When I was at Chaco Canyon last year, one of the hikes I did not do was the hike to Peñasco Blanco. So it was high on my list this time.
Peñasco Blanco was awesome.
So far in the last week and a half I’d hiked barefoot in Zion (8.4 miles, 5.4 miles, and 5.4 miles) and in the Grand Canyon (1.1 miles on the rim, 6.3 on the way down, and 3.7 north of Bright Angel Campground). I wasn’t particularly footsore.
But now it was time to head up the Bright Angel Trail: 9.5 miles horizontally and 1 mile vertically.
Back in mid-April, I highlighted a survey that was being conducted by Anemone Cerridwen.
The results of that survey are now in and analyzed.
Let me say that Anemone did a terrific job of analyzing and
displaying the results, with nice pie charts like this one.
There are bar charts too, but what you really want to read is her analysis. Rather than my trying to excerpt pieces, I suggest that you just go read her write-up directly.
