Flood Hefley

Flood Hefley was a devoted hiker of the Grand Canyon National Park and explorer of its history from 1972 until his death in 2016. Captivated by the canyon, he launched a decades-long series of solo backcountry hikes beginning in 1980, which instilled his desire to better understand the history of the chasm he walked. Along the way, Hefley coached many in the art of canyoneering.
