A Trip Through the Grand Canyon

Ed Hensley's Grand Canyon info

Boldly go where no one (or at least very few) have gone before. Ed is currently writing a book about inner-canyon hiking based on his experiences. His favorite place in the Grand Canyon, Clear Creek, just happens to be one of mine as well, and he was very helpful in planning my Spring 1996 hike in that area.

The Grand Canyon
