Taken as we were leaving Hell's Hollow campsite.
The darker areas in the canyon wall are remnants of ancient lava flows.
The same lava flow as we passed by.
As a side note, Diamond Creek is the only place in Grand Canyon National Park, aside from Lee's Ferry, where there is vehicular access to the river. However, Diamond Creek Road is a 20+ mile long, non-maintained, dirt and rock road through the Haualapai reservation that starts at Peach Springs. There are some raft trip concessionaires that end their trip at the Diamond Creek take-out.
A huge lava rock in the middle of the river. (Taken about 10:30 a.m)
Ocotillo Cactus were prolific in this area. Taken about 2 p.m.
Just some more interesting formations.
It had a heck of a drop to it.
Jim took a turn at the oars for a while.
Matt's raft dropping backwards into 209 Mile Rapid, the last one of the day.
Holes in blue-gray colored canyon wall...
