See trip notes at the end.
On our first hike, we ran into a bighorn sheep, first in our experience.
Our camp at Murphy. We searched and searched for a tent that could handle high wind but permitted sitting inside at a table. The tent worked OK, but at this camp, one of its poles was bent by a 60-mph gust at 3 am. The best bet for the White Rim is a robust 4WD camper with a low profile.
Tne Ancient People (pre Hopi and Navajo) erected this signaling station on top of a butte; worth a visit
