Grand canyon rafting — day 2

View from hot na na in the morning light.
Elliot, ready for a day of big water.

Day 2 is a big rapids day. It was cool this morning and the water is below 50 degrees so we really appreciated our splash jackets.

The water really is this green.

We stop for a hike up north canyon, a gorgeous slot canyon. At the pool Megan and Leia gave us a wonderful little guitar and vocal concert. The acoustics of the pool are amazing.

Big horn sheep, including a “lamb”.

A game of hunker down. Somebody gets wet. :)

We got a beautiful rainbow. My camera really doesn’t do it justice.

Dinner was salmon, quinoa and fruit salad. It was delicious, though a little sandy. The wind was pretty strong during dinner prep.

It rained off and on over night but i rested well wrapped in a tarp. Wet is way better than hot. We don’t need no stinken’ tents. (Though they are provided for those who feel otherwise.) Word to the wise it is a lot cooler near the water.
