From Hermit's Rest in Grand Canyon National Park, hike down the Hermit Trail to the Junction with the Tonto Trail. Turn right/east and follow the Tonto to Monument Creek.
After hiking across the Tonto Plateau in the Grand Canyon, we descended into the Monument Creek drainage. Throughout the day, we had watched storm clouds gather along the rim of the Grand Canyon. As we set-up camp just before sunset, we watched band after band of rain creep down the creek bed. The light was beautiful and quite eerie.
