Well, today is the 1st of April and it was my job and duty to secure reservations for the Phantom Ranch at the Grand Canyon National Park for April of 2010. The reservation calendar opens up for April 2010 on April 1, 2009. And ALL the slots for the dormitories, sold out in 55 minutes this year. So, by 6:55 AM - they were gone.
By the time I called, I secured CAMP SITE reservations - meaning no roof over our heads. WHAAA!
So, tentatively, we are scheduled for a stay over on the 6th and 7th at the Phantom Ranch of April 2010. I might try for a May 2010 visit to the Ranch. What a bummer - I mean, sleeping overnight might be OK at the bottom. we'll see! I will definitely get a tent of some sort.
It won't be like the 2007 trip!
More to follow.
