The perfect documentary. And we get philosophy to boot! Outstanding paddling skills, and excellent job of keeping the GoPro steady. Thanks for sharing with us.

That came together very well John. Nice job! You might be glad to know the tammy log you used to climb up into silver grotto was still there in mid-June. Not sure it'll survive to monsoon, but I scurried up it as well. Very cool movie!

Awesome, awesome. I love soloing things, but this is the mack daddy. I don't remember the last time I watched a 26 minute video, self produced but I enjoyed every minute.
You are a great story teller, I hope you get to continue. Cheers.

Thanks again for all the support everyone. I think a lot of the time spent filming and editing seemed like it was the opposite of what I was trying to accomplish in this film - slaving away in front of a computer instead of spending more time on the water, but it's good to know it inspires and brings back memories. I may try to pursue filming/documentaries a little more seriously, so keep an eye out.

I definitely crave it now. You don't get the same experience with other people, which isn't to say one is better than the other, but the feeling of having so much freedom in such a magnificent place is pretty unique. I think next time I go down I want it to be with friends and family so I don't feel selfish, keeping the experience to myself, but would certainly go back alone in a heartbeat. Not only the Grand Canyon though, there's something special about wilderness time spent alone. It engenders a lot of introspection and soul searching that doesn't happen in the bustle of normal life.
