Dirk & Faye set up for Lava Falls Rapids - Grand Canyon

LAVA!!! The word creates anxiety among rafters on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. Grand Canyon rapids are rated on a scale of 1-10 instead of the usual I - V. Lava Falls Rapids has a reputation as one of the toughest. It is rated a 9 or 10 depending on the cubic feet per second ("cfs") of the River at the time.

 

I rafted with Arizona Raft Adventures AZRA.
