Photographer's Note

In yesterday's posting I showed the rafters pulling into shore at the end of their journey through the Grand Canyon. In the past they would have continued their journey and done the take-out in Lake Mead. However, the prolonged drought in the southwest has lowered Lake Mead's level causing the Colorado River to reappear. As it reappeared, it cut into the 200 feet of sediment deposited in the lake when the lake was at its highest level. The new channel hit some resistance resulting in the formation of the Pearce Ferry Rapid.
