At the only Class II/III rapid on this section, I looked at my GPS and saw I was moving at 9.4 mph. Things then got exciting and I did not look again until I was in "slack" water going 7.0 mph.
Attached are two photos. They do not do justice to the grandure of the canyon when you get inside and have 1,200 foot nearly verticle walls.
We had no blisters, too much food, no turtling, no injuries, 2 tent poles snapped in the wind, and the no gear was lost to litter the river.
Good trip, but lower flow, lower wind speeds, and warmer temperatures would have made it even better.
My shuttle driver kept her window down after picking me up at the take out, so I suspect I stank like a hog after 3 days without a shower.
