There are stretches of flat water interspersed with major rapids. Before the more complicated rapids, we pull over to the shore to do some scouting. Tracy, our friend, is also the permit holder. She invited us to do the upper part of the river. Brantly is her sister and Nick is her nephew. Kate and Peter are partners. Greg is from Seattle and has been down the Colorado several times. A rock formation on the shore gives us a great photo op of the team.
