Grand Canyon Rafting - Thumbnails

These are from a raft trip that I took in the Grand Canyon in April 2005 with the Canyoneers (highly recommended!). We went from Lees Ferry to South Cove, 297 miles; the motorized raft took seven days (pictures 1a-1z = April 15, pictures 7a-7e = April 21). It was a wonderful trip in all respects: scenery, crew, fellow passengers, food, and everything else. I had people send me their pictures after the trip; the 150 pictures included here are a selection from about 1000 pictures from 18 cameras, from waterproof disposables to mid-range and high-end digitals.
