May 17, 2015 - Torroweap

The weather turned nice again so we headed back to Pipespring to get info from the rangers about road conditions. They said you could get down there but the turnoff to tuckup canyon was only 32 miles in and then another 16 into the trailhead. So we headed in and made it about 10 miles before the jeep trail got too bad. We decided to go back and camp at the grand canyon boundary line.

Mar 29, 2010 - Pipe Spring NM

As we leave the GSENM we head back into a section of Arizona called the Arizona Strip. For over 12,000 years the Strip was a corridor for nomadic hunters, hunter-gathers, and traders. Around 300 B.C. they were assimilated into the Ancestral Puebloan tribes that we have been discovering throughout Arizona. We had already learned how these tribes first lived in pit house villages, and some then lived in Cliff Dwellings.
