Day #3: Tuesday, September 9-Getting in the Rhythm

The hustle and frenzy of the launch is behind us and we begin to settle into the rhythm of life in the Canyon.

The last two days have brought heavy rain that gushes over the canyon walls and taints the once blue green river into what the team tells me looks like chocolate milk. My radio system continues to give me uncertainty, working okay early in the day and then fading out, unfortunately right in a rapid.

The team has worked frantically to troubleshoot with no conclusion. We push off this morning to finish a series of rapids known as the “20’s.” 253 miles to go.
