Paria adventure continued (see previous TR)

Thankfully the rain that had been pelting our tents allllll night long, petered out just as we got going on our third morning. The skies were a bit gray to start but quickly cleared out and brought in some much needed sunshine. Our canyon shoes and Neoprene socks were frozen from the day before...brrrrrr!

In the early 1900's settlers tried to set up a pump to water their cattle...it was never used

I'm with Chris - that's the outstanding photo from day 3 for me too. Also looks like you were equipped with a suitably wide-angle lens - good planning.
