NOW DOWN ON THE COLORADO RIVER !
After the plane flight, we took a chopper flight around the area and then down to the COLORADO river banks, from where we took a boat ride! Here's a quiet moment of that adventure!
Some others have been already posted by me on TE!

As I truly didn't know it could me the one and only time over there, I decided to take the most complete tour over the Grand Canyon nearby Las Vegas!
First a van from Las Vegas to Boulder City. Second a flight from Boulder City to the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM. After that, a helicopter flight over that NATURAL WONDER, going down to the COLORADO RIVER! There, a boat ride! Then, a flight back to the edges of the Canyon to visit some places, such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk with some lunch served over there! Finally, all the way back to Las Vegas by plane and van again! It was certainly totally worthwhile and very enjoyable!
"IN BRAZIL, these days, we're having CARNIVAL (CARNAVAL)! Today, I only have good memories of those parties, when I was a child and a teenager and I really enjoyed the "dancing balls" we had in a club, in VILA DOS OPERADORES, a small village we used to live in! For children, in the afternoon, for adults, at night! I miss all the music (some of them we don't have anymore during these days - yes, they're old fashioned!) I miss the bands, confetti & "serpentina", whistles & colorful plastic hammers, masks & fantasies, dancing around that large room I used to love so much, without thinking about anything, just about how much I loved all that, even the hot weather! I miss the soft drinks I used to have to get some refreshment and the swimming-pool we all went to after all that dancing! Or even taking a bike ride, so happily, before going back home! It's been a while I don't do any of those things anymore! Not even Carnaval in Rio I watch on TV! I usually go to my parents's place or stay home, just resting! This year, I'm even studying! In between, other memories about what I mostly enjoy doing come up to my mind: TRAVELING! And I dream, I dream A LOT about my next adventures! Yes, many brazilians still enjoy CARNAVAL, but many don't and find other things to do during these days!"

A very nice and pleasantly sharp view from the river level. Good with the two slopes on each side bringing the eye towards the centre. Interesting to see how life is on board; looks like a quite comfortable ride! The jar for tips made me smile.

Une plaisante vue depuis cette embarcation confortablement assis, on peut s'identifier à ces spectateurs bien cadrés, jolie luminosité, impressionnant et grandiose paysage.

Good Morning Ney,
It looks like sitting in an easy chair in your living room, whilst experiencing the fun and the excitement of travelling down the Colorado River. A great, relaxed viewpoint!
The scenery is quite spectacular.
The 'v' shaped opening making a great target point, with a further mesa in the gap.
The exposure is sharp and the colours very natural.
Have a great day,

C'est la vie des gens riches et célèbres. Le luxe et le confort pour descendre le célèbre fleuve. J'aime le V que forme les montagnes à l'horizon et la perspective.

La prise de vue me donne l'impression d'être passager sur le bateau et de profiter de cette excursion pour voir ce magnifique paysage. Une photo avec beaucoup de profondeur. Bien fait.

Hello Neyvan. An original photo. With a boat you can get whole new impressions of a landscape. The people in the foreground give the photo depth and life. Very nice.

this must have been an unforgettable experience! Great reportage which helps us to imagine what one can see there, as mentioned before I have been just to the South and North Rims but without being able to afford the plane tour which I really regret. Being on the river gives a completely new perspective to the canyon.
Nice idea to include the people enjoying the view.
Very well done!
