GC2015 Trip Report [Day 9 | 28 November 2015]

As the canyon narrows, we get less [if any] direct sun. It was very cold today. It rained a bit and looked like snow at the rim.

Hiked to Elves Chasm. It was breathtaking.

Also made a stop at Blacktail Canyon and hiked to the music room and the Great Unconformity. Really, really cool.

Nothing major to note with the rapids. Nick is getting better at reading water.

“There was a blue heron who seemed to be leading us most of the day. She was beautiful. I kept telling Nick she was my spirit animal.”
