This was a guy trip – Mike’s brothers Charlie, Tom and Dan, along with his flying buddy Joe, and nephews Tim (Chicago) and Matt& Nick (Moline) . Mike and I did a similar (and shorter) version on our honeymoon. 60% of this hike is in the water in a slot canyon. It’s so scenic, so cool (view and weatherwise). You have to wear special water boots to go through the river, which is (per the ranger) like walking on greased bowling balls. Posted by Picasa
