Tonight I'm on the boat at Bass Camp.  Tomorrow's a layover day and tonight we share camp with a party of 16 from Buena Vista.

Last night we had a great night above Granite.  We ran Horn yesterday and had an excellent ride.  At Granite, I went on a long hike with Rick and Linda up Hermit Trail.  Managed to fall and slash my right knee on the way back.

Good early morning.  We ran Granite, Hermit, Crystal and the Gems today in low water with excellent lines in all Day could not have been more gorgeous.

Had a fun evening, relaxing and partying with other private.

My left foot is swollen.  Not sure from what.  Watching it to see how it goes.

At Blacktail Canyon.

Beautiful sunny day.  Amazing what a difference the sun makes to the mood of a day.

We stopped at Shimuno - flashbacks to the great J-rig debacle of 1993.

Elves Chasm was a blast.  Everyone but Peachey jumped.

Easy day, lots of playing.  Such a nice change of pace from the first few days when we were pushing so hard to get to Phantom.

Even with the sun, I was still often chilled.  Cold water, though warm sun certainly helps.

Steve figured out that he had his oars clipped in backwards.  We'll see tomorrow if it helps.
