Tom, you do a great job helping us all with your GC knowledge. I can't believe people want to hassle you so much. Keep up the good work.

P.S. I'm about half way through reading your book, "Big Water, Little Boats."
Very enjoyable. The vast number of photos really adds a lot. Thanks!

I have yet to meet Tom, but his demeanor (in written form anyway) is exemplary and his knowledge and willingness to share it is much appreciated! Keep up the good work!

Jmacn, the data we all link to is from a number of trips in the Grand Canyon using this tool: Solar Pathfinder - Solar site analysis
I got to log in a few of those on an early 1990's GCMRC science trip. It was certainly not an exact science, as it depended where the pathfinder was set up on the beach at the camp or location we were at. It would take multiple trips or many units to get better coverage for additional camp sites.
That said, winter sun is good at Nanko, Kwagunt, Tanner to Cardenas to Rattlesnake, Parkins, Bass, Below Fossil, Galloway, Stone, Stairway, Whitmore, Parashant, 202, 209, Pumpkin Spring, 220 upper and middle, 222, 224, and 242. Hope this helps, yours, tom

johnryan, Why the snarky comment aimed at Tom Martin? To what end? Do you even know the man you shoot at other than what he posts up here? If not, that's your loss as he is a proven friend and good guy to many who do know him. Don't take my word for it, call him up and get to know him! You will feel better afterwards.
