Grand canyon rafting — day 3

Day 3 is a float day. No rapids to speak of. Still, it turned out to be my favorite day of the trip.

Redwall cavern.

We stopped at redwall cavern and played horseshoes, bocce ball and frisbee. We also saw some great fossils.

Lunch is under that umbrella.

After lunch we all hitched our boats to Tom’s oar (cargo) boat and listened to Megan give a beautiful concert on the river.

At camp we hiked up to the top of the inner canyon rim. It was a pretty serious hike but the views are well worth it.

Me dangling my feet over the edge of the inner canyon. It was a long hike up and an even longer one down.

Wild life.

Carnitas for dinner tonight. They were spectacular, per usual.

We slept under the stars and, for the first time on the trip, there really were stars. So many stars.
