First stop, Mt. Trumbull School House

   The very few photos above don't come close to showing what's this area is really like. On the PDF you'll see a lot of flowers, volcanic post piles, the main building at the Bar 10 Ranch and much more. Thanks again to "Bud" Leland Sanders for sharing this with all the explorers in the desert.

Bar 10 Ranch, want to stay here? Neat accomodations!
Very hospitable. The Heaton family welcomes you!

   A long trip down through the Arizona Strip past the Mt. Trumbull Schoolhouse and Bar 10 Ranch/Resort to the Whitmore Canyon Overlook at the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. This trip PDF has some very interesting history. How did these ranchers get down there and why? What does this have to do with white water rafting the Grand Canyon? Very interesting trip with GPX track, photos, history and maps.
