April 16th, 2017 – Grand Canyon Colorado River Rafting – Arizona

Day 2 of the trip put Don’s new waterproof camera to the test.  It was a beautiful sunny day (which is good because the water was 52 degrees) and they went through about a dozen class 6 and 7 (out of 10) rapids.   Don took some great movies of them going through the rapids.  Unfortunately, we cannot load those, so if you want to see the movies of the rapids you will have to visit us.

The 7th picture shows one of the stops for the day.  In the foreground is a hot spring where you can get nice and warm and them jump off the rock in the background into the cold river.  Brandon is in the left corner of the raft preparing to get another soaking.  A second stop involved a walk (a climb up a rope and hanging ladder) to a grotto containing Travertine Falls (pictures 13 – 14).  As you can see from the pictures, the view of the Grand Canyon from the river is outstanding.

Another night on a beach with a great dinner – shrimp appetizer, NY strip steak and brownies.

    Since this is something I’ll will never do, it was nice to see the Grand Canyon from this view.

    Thanks, Barb

    Dear Leslie and Don, Greetings from the Mckees !! What a coincidence that the night before I received your wonderful Grand Canyon pics, we had been talking about the possibly of taking the Odyssesys trip of the Grand Canyon etc next April !! Your pics have definitely made us want to see that part of the world as we have never been to Arizona. Looks like you are having a blast. It seems like a good time to visit the Grand Canyon . We have such fond memories of the Northern Italy trip we did . Can’t believe it was 2 years ago. We have just returned from a month Downunder doing the 2 week Odyssesys tour of New Zealand which was fantastic with a fun group of people and then spent 2 weeks in Australia on our own!! Loved it all . Thanks again for the pics and I love your commentary. Cheers, Mary and Dave
