Following on the heels of a thread regarding the Escalante Route below, I've a specific question about using the Aquamira Pro in the Grand Canyon.
I will be dependent on the Colorado River for water half the time on a 4 day hike in the Grand Canyon. I normally use the Aquamira Pro as a gravity filter, but all of my hiking has been, to date, in the North East, and I've never had to prefilter my water.
What method would you recommend for pre-filtration of water? I've been doing my best to reduce my hydration system to a comfortably UL system. So, if a bandana will truly suffice, I'd love to know.
Thanks so much, again!
