white water

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!

What a ride!  This is Upset Rapid on the Colorado River in the heart of the Grand Canyon.  What a ride we had.  15 days of the timeless and changing landscape of one of the world’s great natural wonders.  Sometimes the water was raging, like here at Upset.  Sometimes the water was calm and we had to oar our way along.  Always, it was incredibly beautiful and invigorating.

Yep, it certainly was roaring… and boiling and crashing and raging.  It was incredible to see and be in the presence of such powerfully flowing water.  And, mind you, this is a creek!  I always think of a creek as small and gently flowing.  But, this is up at about 5000 feet in Kings Canyon National Park in the Sierras in June in one of the biggest water flows in years.  Anyway, I had the pleasure of hiking up along the roaring currents trail for 4 miles or so before the flow leveled off in Paradise Valley.  I usually like the quiet of the mountains, but on this hike, the creeks constant roar was my friend.  Can you hear it?
