The Grand Canyon and Colorado River have changed dramatically over the years. There used to be some pretty serious rapids between Separation and Pearce Ferry, but now they are all buried under the sediment of Lake Mead.
Reached camp around lunch time, and had a very lazy day. I laid in my sleeping bag and watched the sky most of the day.
“So close to being done. Ready to go home. Ready to get clean and shower. Ready to see Sarge and talk to family and friends. Excited to tell people that Nick and I are engaged!!”
