Two miles from Boulder Narrows we approached the North Canyon area.
I have no idea what this plant is, but its flower was big, and pretty.
More of the same plant.
On the other hand, this thing looked downright dangerous!
Well, they weren't really held hostage. All they would have had to do was move and the birds would have taken off. The Heron had landed a short distance off the bow of KJ's raft and attempted, unsuccessfully, to catch some fish. Then, for whatever reason, a Raven came along and landed on the beach not far from the Heron. Apparently they strutted around each other for a while until the Heron was able to chase the Raven away and then the Heron moved off to another section of the beach.
Some of Mother Nature's handiwork.
Justin dropping in to North Canyon Rapid.
We would go through some calm waters...
As well as seven more rapids.
Nearing the end of the day.
