camp spots in grand canyon in november

i'm guessing the steven's and other guides mostly identify the common camping spots and since most people float the GC in spring, summer, and early fall i am wondering if the ideal spots for november trips are not shown.

anybody aware of any compilations or suggestions of camps that catch good light during november trip?

Check out the boater's almanac in this link - shows the times each day the sun will (or won't) hit each major campsite in the canyon

yes, that is good info

yes, thanks, i have that and it has some helpful info. but i think that almanac pretty much shows the data for the "regular" sites, which, i am guessing emphasizes the sites that have developed to maximize shade for summer trips. i am hoping there are other sites that maximize sun that are less well known or publicized.

for example, on one early march trip i stayed just below the confluence in a site that had good early and late sun but it doesn't show in the steven's guide or the almanac you mentioned.
