Harvey Butchart

Grand Canyon Treks Harvey Butchart hiked over 12,000 miles in the Grand Canyon. Credited with finding more than 116 new approaches to the Colorado River and with summiting 83 of the 183 named peaks in the Grand Canyon (35 of those being first ascents), Backpacker Magazine called Harvey Butchart the “undisputed king of extreme and obsessive Grand Canyon hiking.” He is shown here, camping in the Grand Canyon. The photo was taken by his friend Jorgen Visbak.
