  1. Re: Need Advice Re : First ever visit to South Rim of GrandCanyon in January

    Are you sure you haven't confused that with Desert View? The image posted looks a bit like the eastern end of the canyon looking north.

    Truthfully, the best views from Hermit's Rest (the trail...
  2. Re: Need Advice Re : First ever visit to South Rim of GrandCanyon in January

    I worked at Hermit's Rest form 1991 thru 1992. Whatever "dirt road" you thought you were on was probably the employee and park service access. You would've driven past the manager's house, the...

    Re: Focusing cloth ?

    The Wanderer cloths use adjustable elastic on one end. They’ll add snaps on request for an additional fee but I don’t find it necessary.

    Re: Focusing cloth ?

    I'm a big fan of the Wanderer dark cloths. Hand made, weight-y but breathable and available in several sizes and styles. They're a little pricey but worth it.
