Beginning a new day rafting the Colorado River - Grand Canyon

"Night and day the river flows. If time is the mind of space, the Colorado is the soul of the desert. Brave boatmen come, they go, they die, and the voyage flows on forever. We are all canyoneers. We are all passengers on this little living mossy ship, this delicate dory sailing round the sun that humans call Earth." Edward Abbey, The Hidden Canyon: A River Journey, 1999


"For the first time, I felt I was getting close to the West of my deepest imaginings, the place where the tangible and the mythical became the same." Edward Abbey


Here Faye Atkinson is rowing. I rafted with Arizona Raft Adventures AZRA.
