    I would like to come if it isn't.

    •  Always warm in the inner canyon, dsb. . . (7+ / 0-)

      actually about 30 degrees warmer compared to the rim. But June is traditionally the hottest and driest month. July at least begins the monsoons, though these have been rather stingy since the prolonged Southwest drought set in sometime around the early to mid-90s. Here's the other caveat you might want to think about: leave damn early and get to where you're going and that way you beat the heaviest heat. And inner canyon temps can average about 110 to 120 degrees, with an added kick from the radiating temps of the inner canyon gorge. If you're not used to heat, rethink your season when you want to come and hike. Late October thru late March or early April is premier.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
