Just after Bedrock Rapid at mile 130 you enter a very narrow section of the Grand Canyon, the Granite Narrows, as you can see in the first picture here the width of the river and the canyon walls enclosing it become "close"... the narrowest point of the river is at Granite Gorge here in the Granite Narrows, it is only 76 feet wide, about 25 meters...that is NOT very wide to get all that water through.
It is just beyond this point where we first spot Deer Creek Falls at mile 136, you can see the raft anchored at the shore, but when the river is swollen you can anchor right next to the waterfall.
