On route to the canyon we experience the tough desert dirt roads! Rear tyre slashed to shreds, it proved to be a burden for the rest of the trip, as we crawled along to the start of the hike and then halfway back home.
The descent into the canyon is tough on the knees and the heavy packs mean you have to concentrate hard on the technical sections!
We swam as often as we could, the water was icy and very welcome after a long days hike in the heat.
