I’d already gone through the rapids in the smaller whitewater raft.  After getting through, we stopped in the calmer water and watched and waited for everyone else to get through.  Quickly, I got my camera out of its waterproof box and steadied myself as best I could while bobbing around on the flowing Colorado River, selected a fast shutter speed and caught the big oar boat heading our way.  They sure looked like they were having fun!

That’s what journeying down the Colorado River is; blending and morphing into everything that’s there.  There’s no distinction between the rock and canyon walls and river and sky and person immersed inside it all.  Human and nature blended as one.  That’s really what rafting into and through the Grand Canyon is all about; accepting the flow of the river and just being a part of it.

Our plan for the day was to hike up to Thunder River, a river coming out of a wall of the Grand Canyon that eventually flows down into the Colorado River.  But, before heading up, we had to traverse the swiftly flowing Canyon Creek.  The sturdy-of-foot ones went first to create a line of support for those less sure footed.  It was quite cool early in the morning and an exhilarating start to a momentous day of hiking in the awesomeness of the Grand Canyon. A very careful stream crossing on our hike up to Thunder River

The Grand Canyon that is.  This was our last morning on the river and we were celebrating in prayerful dance; honoring our incredible journey, each other, and our mighty host, the Colorado River.  There’s really nothing more to say.  It still brings back feelings of awe.

I think I’ll post this news flash here, above the image in question.  It seems many of you read what’s above the photo as opposed to what’s below the photo.  What about you?  Anyway, to view many more images of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon go to my galleries page at

It’s day 4 of a 15 day rafting adventure down the Colorado River inside the Grand Canyon.  Before heading back out onto the mighty river, many of us chose to take the trek up the side of the canyon wall along a well-worn path to the ancient Pueblo Indian graineries for a bit of canyon history and to get an incredible view of the river and canyon below us.  I always love the perspective of being up above the area I’m exploring.  I tend to feel more a part of it when I get back down.
