From the high cliffs just below Beaver and into the nice bubbly pool. Must have done it 6 times that day...

Image

edit to say its probably 60 or 70 feet from where we were jumping. The last one of the day I decided to hold my arms above my head and didn't get them all the way up in time. Pretty bad slap to the underarms and slight concussion. Probably enough of those hits to make me even more impulsive than normal!

Spent the night on the ledge at Toroweep

From the 50th birthday trip/reunion for a boat load of Jersey Boys who remained high and drunk for 3 straight days.

Rosanne and I coming out of Deer Creek Narrows. I'd known her for years and years but this trip is when things clicked for us. I don't know if it was the full moon at Silver Grotto or the fact that she was front and center for literally every rapid.

Looking back at the Grand Wash Cliffs the last trip I did. I'd never seen them in the rain. I had a friend who always said, "You never know when you'll get to come back to the Grand Canyon" and I look back and can't believe how long it really has been.

J1D The first big blue beauty Demaree Inflatable Boats made. It seemed like everyone had a ride on this thing and it was completely falling apart by the time I got it.

Robbers Roost - we had to drive through a massive snowstorm to get there but that desert kind of broke it up and we had fantastic weather all weekend.

You should try physical therapy. I know a guy who can help.

Funny. Testing the limits of the word, eh? Double those meds.

And where's the precambrian schist? (besides yer face)
