Day 6, Grand Canyon Horsethief/Butte Fault route, Lava/Chuar Camp. I awoke on Saturday morning hoping this was the day I'd get a ride in a boat across the Colorado River to continue my itinerary. I had been waiting on the beach since 2:30 on Thursday afternoon. I kept telling myself, "One of these times, you'll look up and there's going to be a boat there". And then at 10:30 am, there they were - a whole trip full of boats! I flagged them down and the trip leader, John, said he'd be happy to take me across and take my cache bucket out with him. Even got a bonus ride through Lava/Chuar rapid on his sweet cataraft! John deposited me on the beach at Palisades and I told him I'd make sure to rate his Uber service five stars! I hiked up to the top of the rapid to connect my steps, then spent the afternoon relaxing and playing in the big sandbar before heading over to Tanner Beach for the night.

Bundled up and perfectly content during our hike to the top of Seneca Rocks; probably my favorite picture of the Winifred from today. #spreadtherumer

We hiked to the top of Seneca Rocks today, a fairly easy hike amidst light flurries offering sweeping views of a snow colored Allegheny Front. It was awesome to see the contrast of seasons with winter settling in on the Allegheny Highlands and fall slowly giving way in Smoke Hole Canyon below. . Check out our story to see what it was like at the top 🙂

Fall vibes 🍁🍂 I was worried moving to the West Coast that I would miss my favorite season. Not that I mind the palm trees everywhere, but it's been nice to find little hints of fall around. ❤️ Happy Sunday! . . . . . #sunrisejournals #optoutside #forceofnature #outdoorlife #nature #earthporn #backpacking #fallvibes #autumn #inspire #inspiration #adventure #takelessdomore #getoutside #rei1440project #goplayoutside #keepitwild #wildernessculture #exploremore #womenwhohike #beautiful #vegan #nomeatathlete #womenwhoexplore #california #explorecalifornia

It's about 10x harder to hitchhike in Arkansas than in Colorado, but thankfully a deer hunter's conscience got to him and he gave me a ride into Jasper from the end of the trail. It just so happens that my dude @alanjackson_greatesthits_vol2 was staying in an airbnb in Jasper the same night. So I got the privilege of joining the Parsons family sibling trip 2k17. What an honor . . . #lifeisrad #buf#buffalorivertrail #brt #arkansas #ozarkmountains #ozarknationalforest #buffaloriver #glorifiedhills #hiking #hikertrash #gossamergear #takelessdomore

Not much to say about the Buffalo River Trail. I did the 40 in about 24 hours. It was windy. It was wet. The rocks were pretty rad. I ate some fruit snacks and chips in this cave . . . #lifeisrad #buffalorivertrail #brt #arkansas #ozarkmountains #glorifiedhills #cave #granite #hikertrash #hiking #gossamergear #kumo #takelessdomore #ultralight

Some of my favorite alpine lake experiences come from scrambling up the ridges and peaks that sit perched so high above them. #optoutside #highroute
