Woke up bright and early before the sun came up to drive up to Lee’s Ferry for the first day of our 13 day/12 night Grand Canyon voyage with Grand Canyon Whitewater. The water starts out near crystal clear and a cold 50 degrees F, but the Paria River quickly puts that to an end with its muddy brown waters. We would soon find that one of the most awesome parts of this trip would be that every single campsite we stayed at had beautiful fine sand beaches and stunning views of the canyon. The first day we hit a couple rapids and camped at Hot Na Na around mile 17. Day 2 we stopped for a quick day hike up North Canyon where the rock walls of the canyon seemed more like waves that you wished you could somehow skate or surf up and down. We set up camp that night at South Canyon around mile 32.
