Photographer's Note

A slightly closer view than yesterday's of the Pearce Ferry Rapid. Perhaps you're thinking "That doesn't look too bad." If you look to the left of the start of the white water you will see a pair of boulders. Those boulders are over 6 feet tall. Having been down at water level, I estimate the standing wave at the center of the rapids is over 8 feet tall. The whole of the Colorado River is being funnelled through this choke point (I'm estimating it at 50 to 60 feet across at its narrowest).
