Kimberly and Paul went in the paddle raft again, and paddled a big rapid shortly after launch.
We passed right next to some bighorn sheep alongide Helicopter Eddy, then pulled over at mile 137 to hike up Deer Creek. From the 180-foot waterfall, we hiked up high above the river, and then walked along
narrow ledges. About half an hour later, we arrived at the Patio, an open flat
area with trees and a small waterfall just upstream.
Returning to the boats, we ran a few rapids before stopping for the evening at mile 140. The canyon
was narrow, with towering walls of dark red Muav limestone. In the evening, Pablo invited guests
onto the dory while he played guitar and sang classic rock songs.
