August 26th to 28th, 2011-Fruita, Colo. to Westwater, Utah


A brief pictorial from our recent adventures on the Colorado River. I apologize for the quality of the "on the water" shots. They were taken with a waterproof disposable camera, but they show part of the story. Very warm on the river, temps approaching 100F. First guided trip we've ever been on and it was a great one!

I've been there and and done that on 3 big trips myself and your pictures are fine! Looks like you had a good time and got to see some of the wonders along the river including Hoo Doos etc. I always liked seeing how the river and skies changed during the day and from mile to mile. Are you planning a TR? Anyway, glad to see another water contribution to SP Bill!

Thanks, Kathy, thought you might like this one. Wasn't planning a TR but I do have it written down.... Most of the pictures I posted were taken from our camp with my digital. The river shots were from the disposable.
My wife and I look forward to doing another one of these trips next year, perhaps a longer one on the Green.
Thanks for giving it a look!
