Black Canyon Paddle

I’ve lost count how many times I’ve been down the Colorado River below Hoover Dam, but the trip is always a highlight and it never gets old. As in most of the downriver trips I’ve down, we launch from just below the dam and explore the sauna cave and surrounding side canyons.

After setting up camp at Arizona Hot Springs, we enjoy millet brown rice noodles before a warm soak in the slot canyon above.

The next day starts off with bagel sandwiches. After the boy scouts group takes off, we follow. The highlight of this trip is near Emerald Cave. Just above, we spot bald eagles. One of them perches regally on the cable cart. It’s my first time seeing them here.

Each trip here brings something new and refreshing.
