Photos from my Grand Canyon rafting trip

I'm excited to show you a few photos from my recent rafting trip on the Colorado River thru the Grand Canyon. I want to go back! It still seems like a dream. The National Park Service has changed the permitting system to a lottery instead of a waiting list. So maybe we will get lucky and not have to wait another 16 years to go again!

There were a total of 6 boats and 16 friends on our self-guided trip.

My son at the oars (and unseen friend in the front of his
boat) in Hermit Rapid. None of our boats flipped on this trip.

My husband rowing Hermit Rapid with Montana friends in the front.

From left to right, my son's gf, my daughter, a family friend/uncle and my
son cooking dinner for the group. First thing we do when we arrive at our
camp/beach for the night is to find a big flat area to set up our great kitchen.

Our Montana friends relaxing in the front of the boat between rapids.

Clear blue water found in Havasu Creek...one of the many side hikes on the trip.

My favorite photo of the whole trip...my son and daughter at Nankoweap Indian Granaries
