Grand Canyon--6 day float trip
      #316972 - 31/05/18 10:59 PM

My wife and I floated the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon last week..was my second time doing this and was as good or better than the first..Rapids were insane in places along with all the beauty the area has to offer..highly recommend it..

Took a GoPro along..will post aome video when I have a bit more time of us in the rapids...also have literally 100's of pics..but this will have to do for now.. have a good one..

We took a charter to the area..wife was the co-pilot..

We slept on cots..tents were optional..my wife and I never used one..was way to nice out..usually slept on top of the sleeping bag until 2-3AM

Bit early for shearing the sheep

Good photos Ripp. That would be a cruise I would like to do.

Ripp I don't like it when you do these travel reports, should be banned. Every time you do you just add to my bucket list and I am struggling to fill my original list.

PS keep them coming.
