We'll spend a little time at Lees Ferry... how 'bout it?
Lees Ferry is the only place within Glen Canyon / Grand Canyon
area where you can drive up to the Colorado River in over 700
miles of canyon country, right up to the first rapid in the Grand Canyon.
This "rapid" is called "The Riffles", and as you can see, it's not
too tretcherous... but just rough enough to be called a rapid. This
is where Frank and I like to dip our toes in the water after a long
hike on a hot day. It's so fun watching the river adventurers setting
off in their first mile, and fly fisherman testing their lines. This guy
caught a "sucker" - a bottom feeder - that was a lovely orange color
and nearly two feet in length. He showed it to us, and gently let it go.
