In Gary's oar boat again, we ran a few small rapids before making a tricky landing at the
entrance to Matkatamiba Canyon. We walked through a slot canyon and up a creek. We chimneyed up
and over the creek, and scrambled over boulders until the canyon opened up into an amphitheater
with sheer rock walls. We lounged for a bit, and then walked up the creek for a while.
In the afternoon, a hot wind blew upriver. We poured jugs of cold river water over ourselves to
keep cool. Evan lounged on the raft, and said he was a plant and needed to be watered. We camped at
Tuckup, at mile 165.
