grand canyon rafting trip pics

Here are some shots of my 3 day rafting trip through the grand canyon last week. it was an amazing trip.. and I highly reccomend anyone considering it to do it, definitly a trip of a lifetime.

trip started out in vegas..

then it was time to rest up for the flight in the am.

caught a little charter flight out to the Bar 10 Ranch on the rim of the canyon. its a 250,000 acre working cattle ranch on the rim of the canyon.. cool place and great food.
we landed on a little dirt strip..

hopped on some quads and did a trip out to the rim of the canyon to see what we were in for.

my wife blazing down the trail..

then went back and shot some skeet.. followed by a great dinner.

we then had a campfire and some beers then it was off to bed..

we slept in this covered wagon..

in the morning we caught a helicoptor at the ranch and flew into the canyon to meet the raft.

landing in the canyon was quite a sight.. that helicoptor pilot had some skills.. yikes!

time to hit the river and see some sights!

we did lots of stops to do hikes and see sights like waterfalls and indian cave paintings..

we camped for 2 days on the floor of the canyon.. some people set up tents.. but we opted to see the stars and just slept out in the open on a cot.. amazing.

and boy oh boy did we eat good.

image by beavis0076, on Flickr

brought a few cigars.. this one was from jbmccul

image by beavis0076, on Flickr

and you know I brought a beersnap!!!

we got up each morning.. had a great breakfast and loaded the raft for another days adventures.

we also saw the skybridge.. what a gyp for the people that go to it.. its not near the river.. its in an offshoot of the canyon.. they dont let you bring cameras out there.. but will sell you a pic.. cant wear shoes or go barefoot.. but will sell you booties.. its a money trap.
cool shots of it though.

and then it was about over..
we got a group shot.. and caught a jet boat to hit lake mead and catch a ride back to vegas...
