Eric contemplates Boulder Dam, heading for the launch site. Structure in the window at upper right is part of the new bridge for Hwy 95 going in.
Sure it's cold, but there are hot springs down there!
Meg and Darren, with Margarite onboard (unbeknowest to us all).
Time push off
Great weather to start the float
Getting ready to launch.
One last look . . .
Happy boaters Kelly and Jason - first time on the river.
Darren and Meg are already kayakers, so they just have to get used to the rentals.
Hot water seep at shoreline.
I like the added monkey tail.
Rob and Eric scout first canyon.
First small waterfall - the water was somewhat warm.
A short tight spot.
Next fall has a rope. Oh Boy. Never know how old the rope is or what it's attached to above.
Jason scrambles up. Knots in the rope helped.
One of the dammed-up soaking pools. Water probably about 100F - very nice.
Now you have to go DOWN the rope.
Back on the water.
The 'bathtub ring' shows how below normal the river is.
Shallow green water and reflections off Sandy's yellow boat.
We stop to explore another hot stream side canyon.
Another (large) soaking pool formed with sand bags.
Nearing our camping beach.
Camp is set and dinner begins.
