BLACK CANYON CANOE RETREAT

Here are just a few photos of our canoe trip on the Colorado river this past week.

My friend from Missouri Mike Ketcherside and his nine year old son River went with us on the trip.

We put our canoes in just below the Hoover dam. Here is a canoe’s eye view of the Hoover dam rising some  1100 feet above the water.

My son in law Adam had a great time on the water.

The Colorado river will take me a lifetime to discover. And even then it will offer so much more to explore.

Great trip, can’t wait to take Brenda next time.
