My good friend,

staging and packing our rafts with

Dine-A-Ville Pink Dinosaur

,
Because the Green River awaits!
,
We were a crew of all females,
guides and all!
,
It’s easy to slide into the flow of river life.
,
Here was the view from Camp 1
,
This trip is special because the geology of the
area is unmatched. 44 miles through the river
canyons tells the story of eons.
,
Scoping rapids is key!
,
On day 2 we hike to a waterfall.
Always a gift in the desert.
,
It was nice to freshen up a bit in the FREEZING
cold water. Re took this photo!
,
Camp 2 gave us a beautiful moonrise
Camp 2 and a mighty moonrise.
,
And a delicious dinner!
,
Camp 3 placed us near a pictograph hike.
,
The Mitten Park Fault rears
skyward.
If you like geology, this trip is for you!
,
Can you muster a headstand on
Headstand Rapid?
,
Steamboat Rock
Re is excited because we’re
nearing the confluence of the
Green and Yampa Rivers.
