Saturday, July 20, 2013: "Plant Walk in the Upper Basin with Kirstin Olmon" 8am to 5pm.
Kirstin Olmon will lead a day-long trip to the Upper Basin of the Tusayan Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest. We will be driving north via Hwy. 89 almost to Cameron and Hwy. 64 west to the ponderosa forest area near the Grandview Lookout Tower near Grand Canyon National Park. The drive each way will take about 1 1/2 hours. We will be on dirt roads for only about 1 mile, and we won't be walking far, but the terrain will be rocky and uneven. It is not expected that a park pass will be needed, but if you have one, please bring it just in case.
We will meet at the Arizona State Credit Union Parking lot, southwest corner of Butler and Beaver at 8:00am. Come prepared with the following:
- rain protection
- sun protection
- lots of water
- small notebook to make personal plant list
- car or gas money for carpooling
