MSR Hubba Tent in middle Cremation Canyon

On night three of the Grandview - Tonto - South Kaibab hike we dry camped in middle Cremation Canyon. There is no water in this canyon so we filled up at LoneTree Canyon with all the water we needed to get to this Canyon, make dinner and breakfast, and have enough water to climb up South Kaibab trail to the Rim. I think I carried 7 liters. The red bag on the rock is an MSR Dromedary cache bag with my dinner and breakfast water. Water management is a critical backcountry skill in the Grand Canyon. Sometimes you hike in and leave caches just so you can retrieve them on the backpacking trip.
