Does this mean the winter is over and spring has sprung? Maybe. Whatever the case is last week five of us hiked Grotto Canyon on ice and rocks. It is tricky doing the rocks with mini crampons (ice grippers) on. I am grateful to Wayne for helping me into the canyon and hauling me out of it; and for Clarence walking back with me while Wayne and Elizabeth showed Kathie (Texas) the cave that is up in the hoodoo wall. It was a nice day. We were not the only ones out for a hike in the canyon. We met people and dogs. There is still lots of ice on the canyon floor, but also very dry rocky sections.
