Images taken during a 3-Day Rafting Trip down the Grand Canyon. Trip originated in Las Vegas with a Chartered Flight to the Bar 10 Ranch on the canyon rim. Spent the day doing ranch activities and slept in a covered wagon. The next morning we were helicoptered down to the bottom of the canyon where we boarded our raft. Spent the rest of the day white water rafting, making frequent stops along the Colorado River. That night we camped along a river wash and enjoyed camp food and the clear night sky. The next day included more rafting before meeting with a jet boat near Lake Mead. The jet boat took us to a dock on the other side of the lake where we boarded a charted bus back to Vegas. The images are more or less in order of events on the trip.
