Lee’s Ferry Hike
Yesterday we hiked up the Spencer trail, supposedly a 2.2 mile climb to a plateau with great views. The views were stunning, but we never made it to the top due to chickening out as the trail got steeper and rockier after an hour an 15 minutes of climbing. It still looked like a long way to the top, we were getting tired, and we knew it was going to be tricky getting down some of the steep parts. Jim went up a little farther than I did. You can barely see my hat in the foreground. We were really high up!
The climb was definitely worth the effort for the views of the Colorado and the colorful rocks.
And we got to see our first Gila monster, and a few other lizards.
After we got back, we watched the rafters go by in front of our site. We liked these with the umbrellas.
