Remembering Kayak Master Bernd Uhrmeister

Bernd Uhrmeister, world class foldboater from Germany, decided in 1965, to run the Grand Canyon. Knowing he would be denied a permit by Grand Canyon for a solo foldboat run, in September 1965 Bernd hiked his gear in two trips to Phantom Ranch undetected. He then paddled to Temple Bar, portaging Horn Creek and Lava Falls. Bernd ran out of food as he exited the Grand Canyon and his two day paddle across Lake Mead to Temple Bar was sans food. The attached photo is Bernd on the Salt River in the spring of 1965. Sometimes I get strength to go forward be seeing where we have come from... Paddle On, tom
