Highlights of June 2001

Grand Canyon Paddling Trip

June 2-8, we went on a paddling trip in the Grand Canyon with our friends John and Leslie and assorted relatives and friends of theirs as well as several other travelers. The trip was run by an outfitter named Canyon Expeditions/Explorations and covered roughly 88 miles of the North Canyon from Lee's Ferry to Pipe Springs. We hiked every day and ran numerous rapids in small 6-person rubber paddle boats. We camped on the beach every night. We hiked out to the South Rim on the last day.
