Virgin Narrows

Virgin Narrows

Virgin River Narrows - Sept 2006. I have always considered this rock to be the 'crux' of the 17 mile Narrows hike - the water around it has always been the deepest part of the trip each of the 3 times I have hiked it (Sept twice and May). This time it destroyed my camera. Image by hiking partner Dennis Goldsmith.

Cool temps, and photo.

Deep Water

I think I'd prefer belly-deep snow! Very pretty! Bummer on the camera.

Re: Deep Water

Thanks! The camera was a total loss, but luckily on that trip my freind Dennis took enough for both of us.

Challenging crossing...

Good to know there are a number of us with such experiences. I darn near went downstream once in a crossing of the Elwha in the Olympics. In the end = good memories. Thanks for posting.

Re: Challenging crossing...

Saw the Elwha for the first time last Summer (My wife and I spent part of our 25th in the Olympics). What a wonderful place.

Re: Challenging crossing...

Stu, glad you folks got to experience and enjoy the Olympics. They are indeed a wonderful place. I had the opportunity to live just upstream of Lake Quinault, next door to the North Shore Ranger Station for several years. Did a lot of trekking over the mountain passes.
