I do R2R2R on Thanksgiving day. We all give thanks in our own way. This site is good for checking on where water is on and any other updates:

One more thing, there are dirt roads (to avoid paying the $25 entrance fee) or if you get there early morning(can't remember time) no one mans the booth. Dirt roads also have some good camping if you need more details, I can plot a route for it.
Good luck its a great hike..


Driving around the Grand Canyon on dirt roads to avoid the feds sounds like bootlegging during good ol' prohibition!!! I've never heard of these yurts is there a site for them or is it a show up and get a place to sleep kind of thing?

You reserve the yurt(if its available) with your permit from the grand canyon backcountry office
