This area of the river was affected by lava flow a long time ago. Remnants of lava flows can be seen surrounding the river. Vulcan’s Anvil is a volcanic remnant that towers in the river a mile above Lava Falls, a lava plug from the past. I didn’t even know there was historic volcanic activity in the Grand Canyon until this trip.

These last two full days of the trip bring us to a close, sadly. Both of us feel like we could stay on the river forever. This trip has been incredible and amazing. The Grand Canyon will now and always have a special place in our hearts and minds. We will definitely be back!

Thank you to our incredible guides (Jeff, Jason, John Dunn, Ted, Brie, Matt, Trevor and Bill). This was truly a trip to remember.

Thank you Grand Canyon Whitewater!
