SPRING FLING 2002

 

The Colorado River

As we neared the river bed, the dust cleared, and we were sheltered from the wind.  The temperature was probably high-70's, and it was sunny and clear.  For me, the river  was the highlight of the trip.  We walked around and took our photos, waded in the incredibly cold river, and ate a picnic lunch.

Barb was fascinated by this rock (left).  She just had to have a picture "shooting up this crack" !

Barb had to wade through some low spots to get her pictures!

Barb told me that "this is the shot I've been trying to get all afternoon".  Funny, I felt the same way about the shot I took of her!
The crack that I waited all afternoon to photograph!
