View to southeast from Clear Creek Camp - Grand Canyon

This is the view to the southeast from our camp at Clear Creek Campground. In the distance are Dunn's Butte and The Howlands Butte. The Buttes are named for the 3 members of Major John Wesley Powell's group who left at Separation Canyon and were never seen again. The Colorado River is about 5 difficult miles downcreek.


We were on our way to Cheyava Falls. Cheyava Falls after a wet winter on the North Kaibab Plateau is on the "must see" list for every serious Canyon Hiker. Come with me on a visual trek. We start on the South Kaibab to Phantom Ranch then across the Clear Creek Trail to Clear Creek and up to Cheyava Falls. 45 miles and over 10,000 feet of accumulated elevation gain - and no trail up the creek - bushwhacking at its finest.
