Today was a short river day -- we only had a few noteworthy rapids.

This trip is all about stunning backdrops

One major rapid we ran was Bedrock Rapid. This is a pretty straightforward rapid -- assuming you make the move you need to make before you enter the rapid. If you don't, it's almost certainly going to be a disaster.

Jess was pretty confident on the oars at this point, so I had her row it, just because why not. Additionally, Amanda rowed her and Nick down safely. This was significant because on our first trip, they didn't make the move and it was a terrible experience for all. Ask her about it sometime.

Amanda making the move she needs to make

We reached camp at 11:07 -- a whole day of cloud-free skies ahead of us. So, our usual afternoon kicked off and we filtered water, drank beers, and played cards.

Nick got a little lazy with tying up his boat

The cliff wall gave us a dazzling sight most of the evening

All in all, a tough day.
