Our 6 a.m. launch time was met with rain showers that turned to blue skies within an hour. After 30 miles of floating, we reached our camp at Trin Alcove, or Three Canyons. Almost immediately after getting camp setup, 40mph+ wind gusts rolled through camp for nearly an hour and a half followed by heavy rains. When you are in a safe spot, watching rain accumulate over sandstone and cascade off the nearest cliff is a very memorable experience. From our perch above the river, and with 270º of visible cliffs, we counted 25 significant waterfalls pouring off the rim of the canyon; it was a-once-in-a-lifetime type of experience.
This was a very memorable trip for us and we believe our attending students will also look back on this trip with fondness. A few of them even mentioned how they would enjoy taking their parents down this stretch of river. Overall, we really couldn’t have asked for better conditions. The heat and bugs were quite manageable, the race to lay claim to premier camp spots was uncompetitive, and the surprise thunderstorms ended up being a great reward rather than a detriment. There is something special about rivers and we hope we gave our students a strong chance at experiencing that for themselves.
