Sun rise/set for camps in GC

Hi friends. Anyone have a reasonably accurate list of sunny camps in Grand Canyon? Im familiar with the shady camps, but I'm looking for the sunniest camps for an upcoming winter trip. I realize that "sunny" isn't always possible this time of year, but wouldn't mind knowing for sure which camps get zero sun. The only list of camps with sunrise/set times I have is very dated and not very accurate. Thanks!

I believe Grand Canyon Private Boaters Assoc GCPBA has this information on their web site some where in their information section.

do a google search to get the web site link

Here's a http://www.ceibaadventures.com/pdf/B..._Almanac-3.pdf link to the list I've used. It's dated, but fairly accurate- horizons and the suns path haven't shifted that much...

Some names are different. If you've got specific camps in mind I've been the last three years in winter, so I've got a pretty good idea about sunny camps. There are some sections that are just tough to find sun, but if you plan ahead you should be able to get at least some sun wherever you camp. Have fun!

Thanks for the link. Sometimes a new thread is more fun than a google search. This is a small trip, so if anyone has any obscure, "I couldn't believe how early/late we had sun!" place to be, I'd be glad to hear about it.
Cheers!

Hi Jmacn,

Okieboater has you moving in the right direction. It's on the GCPBA listserv, in the Files section.

Go to Yahoo Groups and scroll down to the "Boatman's Almanac pamphlet no pictures" file for that information.

Hope this helps.

Tom, are you always needing to be The Guy With All The Grand Canyon Information?

Only from a certain corner...

Hi Johnryan, yours is a curious post, the second i have seen in a week or so. The other very similar comment came from a dedicated GCPBA booster, and i see by your post history you fit that profile. Seems that you are troubled by the messenger without any regard to the message. Just sayin... So I will answer the same way I did last week. As to getting information out to river runners, many folks help get information out to the boating public. We all do what we can, and you are most welcome, if that was a veiled "thank you,"for getting as much information as we can out to river runners with as much factual research and ease of access as possible. All the best, tom

Clearly Tom's passion for and knowledge of the Colorado River in Grand Canyon is matched by few, especially here on Mt Buzz. Thanks to all who contribute helpful information to those curious enough to ask. The boatman's almanac linked through Ceiba, GCPBA, and Tom's GC Wiki is the same resource I was hoping to improve upon as I know from experience is useful but not totally accurate. Perhaps a better reference doesn't yet exist.

No Tom, not a booster. Just observing and saying.
