Colorado River in the Grand Canyon nearing the end of a long day.

Colorado River in the Grand Canyon nearing the end of a long day.

I remember this moment really well. We were camping after what was always a long day on the river and where we were camping there wasn’t much beach.  Just one small soft, sandy spot that a couple people grabbed right away.  But that’s ok, they didn’t have quite this view. Anyway, so a bunch of us found some rocky ledges above the waterline to settle into.   The rocks were perfect for setting a thermarest into and having a very nice place to recline and watch the evening drift by.

We had broken up into different group for meals and my partner, Ed, had cooked a really good dinner and was mixing up the just-add-water cheese cake pie.  This was one of those luxuries that is easily overlooked.  You would NEVER get boxed, just-add-water cheese cake pie at home, but on a long river trip, it was HEAVEN and we easily made everyone else envious.

It was a good day! (as they all were)
