Arid, ancient, and seriously unusual, the
canyons are truly grand. From mid-November to early December
2005, Tony joined a private party of New Zealanders and Americans
on a 21 day (210 mile) rafting trip, from the 'put in' at
Lees Ferry to the 'take out' above Lake Mead, with lots of
hiking, rock scrambling, and fossil foraging en-route.
