Pacific Crest Trail Map

Clear Creek Gorge

Start out early and weather is clear and walk down stream about 2.5 mi (as I estimate) and through numerous tight curves in polished schist. I had hoped that by morning some one else would have shown up in camp and be interested enough to accompany me scrambling down to the river. Thinking about the hands and feet sneak (alone) over the short falls near the river , I thought better judgement dictated that my rock hopping all the way down to the river was best left for another day. Besides the clouds were building again, and being a canyon novice, was not sure just how much water Clear Creek could comfortably take, so decided not to stick around and spend a 2nd night here. Just headed back to camp and explored up the side streams coming in from the East just below the camps. Lots of below-unconformity rocks in there to look at. Broke camp down and got out of the creek canyon on to the Tonto. Hiking back West to phantom ranch, it began raining hard and steady. I walk into Phantom Ranch to get water and walked up (North) Bright Angel Ck a few miles, then up Phantom Ck a short distance , but it began raining harder again so just came back and went up on the Tonto to camp .
