BIg Bend Rafting

Sharing some photos from our trip to float the Rio Grande in Big Bend. Our friend and venerable river guide, Darren, did all the work, and made it look easy. The put in shown in the first picture was just past Lajitas with Mexico in the background. The water was way up (about 16feet) thanks to Hurricane Odile drenching northern Mexico. The water was moving fast and made the rapids at Rockslide quite big. Thanks again Darren for getting us downstream safely. The last picture, taken by our friend Carey, shows me in a semi Bigfoot walking pose. I like it.
