Back From The Grand Canyon!
Victoria and I have just returned home from our rafting trip through the Grand Canyon. I should have some photos in a couple of days (I had to use 35mm waterproof cameras.) I'll provide a bit of travelogue with the photos, if you're interested. Let me just summarize by telling you this:
We spent 7 days and 6 nights floating down 188 miles of the Colorado River. The scenery was awesome, the rapids were cold, wet and exciting, the nights were spend outdoors in a sleeping bag, the sun was HOT!, the hikes were sometimes over scary mountain paths on the edge of a precipice, and the whole experience was unforgettable. To give you a perspective, it was like a combination of:
Rivers Of America
Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland (substitute a raft for the train)
Big Thunder Mountain RailRoad (substitute a raft for the train)
The Submarine Lagoon
Grizzly River Rapids
Pirates Of The Caribbean
all rolled up into one... times ten!
I'm tired, achy, bitten, burned and sore. I loved every second of it!
