The turning point in our trip. Our trip leader broke his ankle on an excursion to the Silver Grotto and required a helicopter evacuation out of the canyon. I am super thankful for the experienced individuals we had on our trip who handled the entire situation seamlessly.
A short day on the river an an unplanned camp. Duff led the group on a hike to find some ruins. We found remains of ancient dwellings and pictographs. You’re not supposed to touch the pictographs because the oils in your hands can degrade them. But! You can touch any ancient pottery or glass you find. Just make sure to put it back where you found it.
