We hit our first major rapid on Day 2– a class 7 on the Grand Canyon 1-10 scale. One of our boatmen got tossed out of his boat. Major wake-up call for the group.
“Floating through the canyon is indescribable. I keep thinking that I don’t know how I will explain this experience to anyone. It’s unreal. We’re in the Grand Freaking Canyon.”
– AK’s River Journal
And how do we get through that safely?? House Rock Rapid is huge. The group spend some time scouting, then Charlie went first– signaling the best rapid entrance.
