Photographer's Note

The Colorado River is known for its numerous white water rapids. The week long trip starting at Lee's Ferry and ending at the beginning of Lake Mead has over 100 major listed rapids.

In this image, even though the raft is a large commercial J-rig type, a rapid completely wipes out the rafters. It is important to hang-on with both hands to the raft deck ropes when riding the larger rapids, and always wear a water life-preserver, for flotation purposes if knocked over-board.
