Grand Canyon Journal


In the spring of 2003, I joined fifteen other people on an 18-day private raft trip through Arizona's famous Grand Canyon. This fantastic journey travels 225 miles down the Colorado River from Lee's Ferry to Diamond Creek. It was peak flower season, the temperatures were moderate, we had plenty of good food, and everyone got along well...all the makings of a great trip!

The Grand is too immense to depict in a literal way and time is irrelevant in a place where rocks are 2 billion years old. The best anyone can do is suggest the feeling of the place — you really need to experience it yourself. The following 144 photograpghs hint at the grandeur and fun.
