Roaring Twenties, part 2

written Feb 17, 2018 @ 03:05 AM after hiking 11.00 miles

We did something unusual this morning: tried to have a slow morning. The river today was going to be fast, so we decided to have a later start and take it easy.

We still left the beach at 8:45, since everyone was ready and just sorta standing around.

Once we were in the river, we just had to finish the Roaring Twenties. Jess rowed these too, which included three rapids rated 6 (out of a maximum of 10), so that was some very good experience. (She did great, by the way)

Between the rapids, there were some stretches of water that were just spectacularly beautiful, so I couldn't resist taking some pictures.

We got to camp around noon, so we had plenty of time to kill. A bunch of us went hiking in South Canyon, and others did whatever around camp.

After that, it was time for hanging out around camp, reading, chatting, listening to Gary and Ed play their guitars, then a taco dinner and bed around 8.

And a campfire, of course.

It really ties the camp together
