Rafting, Grand Canyon National Park: 71 reviews and 203 photos
This was one of the big ones, Lava Falls Rapid, at mile 179. It is rated at 8-10 with a drop of 13 feet, but WHAT A DROP. It was also great becasue we got to anchor our raft and climb a small hill adjacent to the rapid and we could photograph the other raft as it went through the rapids, this was the first opportunity we had with such a good viewpoint. You can see in the first picture with the brown water (caused by an influx of water from an adjacent canyon) how calm the water looks as they approach the rapids. The following pictures show you just how rough it can be.
