This presentation follows Martin’s various hikes in Grand Canyon National Park, from Lee’s Ferry to the Grand Wash Cliffs at Lake Mead. Follow along as Martin explores the Grand Canyon’s remote regions where there are few trails. Many of his hikes are day hikes that start at the Colorado River, while others are more traditional backpacking expeditions. Either way, Martin’s over forty years of exploration of the Grand Canyon ensures that audiences will see and learn about parts of this world wonder that they have most likely never seen or heard of before.
