Colorado Day 5 and 6: The Black Canyon

I don't really know what to say about this trip. It really was indescribable. The Black Canyon is one of those places that you just have to see to believe. It has Grand Canyon grandeur, hard rapids, scary sieves, portages that make you grunt and sweat, and we had perfect weather yet again. We also had a secret weapon....Milo.

Lots of photos and video about the trip on:

Hope you like it.

Nice work on the photos and video. I'm amazed that Shane can carry the whole A/V setup down the river.

It was a great time down there! thanks fellas,
