Toroweap - A Photographer's Adventure

This was one of #MyToughestShot !!

Toroweap is on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and it's very remote!! Getting there is the adventure. I invited 3 of my friends to help me celebrate my birthday at Toroweap. It required 2 days, 2 4-wheel drive vehicles, 2 guides, and lots of gear. The adventure starts near Kanab, UT, a place I dearly love. Around mile-marker 26, there is a dirt road with the sign "Toroweap 61". Yes, that's 61 miles. The first 55 miles are fairly easy. It's dirt and gravel and very well maintained for the first few miles. You pass through great unspoiled areas of the Arizona Strip country. The last 6 miles is where you really need high clearance 4-wheel drive vehicles with someone who knows what they are doing. The last couple of miles is pure rock!! I don't recall seeing a road at all.

A storm passing through creating great clouds in the sky and my friend stepped near the edge to give the photo perspective. Down below, the Colorado River cuts deeper into the canyon. That's a 3000 ft. cliff!! This is also where Lava Falls is located on the river. It's one of the most dangerous rapids on the river.

Later we celebrated with great night photography and brownies to celebrate the day!! It was an awesome birthday celebration!!
