This eTrail is a detailed description of an adventurous loop through the Grand Canyon backcountry. Here is an excerpt from this eTrail's route description. "The fault ravine took us steeply down to its intersection with the west arm of Nankoweap Creek. This is an easy Redwall descent—remarkably easy— and from the intersection it was only three more hours of boulder-hopping until we reached the spring that feeds this arm of the creek. The spring is below the Tapeats in the Supergroup. You can tell roughly where it is—even, I think, from the base of the Redwall—by noting two large Tapeats blocks lying on the hillside on the north side of the drainage. The spring is near the closer of these blocks at about the 4,800-foot contour line. When we reached the bottom of the fault ravine, Gary and Kyle climbed up to the snow bridge and had an icy shower in its dark interior. They estimated its size as 25 feet wide by 30 feet long by 8 feet thick in the middle— thicker at the edges. They gathered some snow for our water bottles and some for the margaritas. Kyle suggested the snow had survived because there had been a late storm and no warm spring rains to melt it away. He may be right, but it also helped that the snow was in a north-facing ravine and never saw the sun."
