August September USA / Grand Canyon
What a grand adventure I had in the Grand Canyon.
I landed in Las Vegas met up with Michael and Jem and enjoyed a couple of days in Vegas
and was enthralled by 2 Cirque du Soleil shows
We also jumped off the Stratosphere Tower
15 of us set off on a 16 day adventure on 5 rafts, entering the clear fresh Colorado
Here we are approaching the confluence of the Colorado and the Little Colorado
where the water turns from clear to chocolate
Camping was also an adventure
A new word was added to my vocabulary - Groover.
entrance to the groover
The groover always had the best view in the camp
shedding his skin
very keen on keeping the sun away from my delicate white skin
We had a fine selection of thunderstorms
The local sheep let us know what they thought of us
