  Colorado River 2013

I just teturned from 2 weeks in the desert and a week on the Colorado R. The weather was cooler than usual with hard frost and wind.

The last night in camp a Navy Blue Angel jet passed over camp and we waved, and he waved his wings. The full moon rose over the river at sunset. We were serenaded by wild donkeys, the coyote choir and 2 great horned owls. A river otter swam past camp. We told the stories of the day around a warm campfire. Desert bighorn sheep, bald eagles, osprey, Sandhill cranes, and Mexican hawks. And jets, lots of really fast military jets.

A lot of access on and off the river has been lost. The vegetation has become overgrown on the lower river. But all in all it was a transformative trip for several crew members, and we are already planning our next trip.
