We postponed breakfast this morning -- instead of having breakfast in camp as we normally do, we rigged and launched so that we could eat breakfast at Redwall Cavern, just a few miles downriver.

I gave Jess the oars to row this gorgeous section. She wanted to row, and I didn't mind just looking and getting lost in my thoughts.
I warned her that the eddy for Redwall Cavern was huge and pretty strong, so we'll have to catch it late. She did a great job and we wound up pretty much where we wanted to be.
Once in the absolutely massive cavern, we set up a quick breakfast and wandered around, taking in the space. After a while, we loaded up and pushed on again.
In the early afternoon, we arrive at camp (Eminence Break) with lots of sun left. After our chores were done, Nick and I went for a hike just to see what's up there.
We found a spectacular view of the river and camp, after some serious scrambling and climbing. Once we reached a plateau, we found a very obvious trail all the way back to camp. Oops.
After that, it was time for dinner, a fire, and then off to bed -- it was getting chilly and I wanted to get snuggled in my quilt.
