   Were the "water holes" on S.Kaibab ripe yet.??? (read "water holes" as
mule dumps)... On Memorial day in "84", it was warm enough to really ripen
the trail...

   From what I read you did the loop in one day.??? We stayed overnite at
Bright Angel C.G. near Phantom Ranch, spent time in the creek cooling off...
That was the year I learned that the Colo. River is not the place to cool
off (macho me dove in, a half a nano sec later I was out --- darn cold)...

   Appears you had good weather,,, ready to do it again.???

 take care,
