    My son is a guide on the Colorado river in the Grand Canyon and he took these pictures. My favorite is the next to last one. I hope you enjoy them and I have more if you want to see them.

    Great pictures. River Guides are a special kind of tough.

    The next to the last one is known as "sticking the tube". At least that is what it is called around here. I don't know when he took these photos but the river looks pretty muddy...all the rivers out here look like that right now. They do not meander like the rivers in Georgia. Water hits the ground running out west. Thanks for sharing.

    These were taken about five years ago. I just found them on a flash drive that was in the bottom of my computer desk. Here are some more.

    Man,, going down that river is a true adventure. I would put it right up there with jumping out of a plane.
    Thanks for sharing some incredible pictures.
