Ambika didn't know I had never been to Lee's Ferry so it was put on our agenda :wrt: before heading back to Phoenix from our ABC camp/hike at the N Rim. They are paving the road all the way. We had to wait before the bridge that goes over the Paria for a pilot car to finally get to the Lee's Ferry site.

It was a warm out but we weren't going far. It had such beautiful surroundings :DANCE: with the chinle formations and the Colorado River along with some old buildings and equipment. We checked out all the cool things, enjoyed the reflections of the hills in the River and the activity of the fishermen and boaters.

On the way back we saw one of Kelly's buddies cousin Chuck peering at us from a rock. So we obliged and took a picture and a movie. Later on down the trail we saw a fisherman make a catch of a rainbow trout so we took a picture and a movie of that too. Back at the river launch area we saw a couple dogs playing in the water and a couple small boats getting ready for launch.

Surprisingly, when you launch from there you get a quick exposure to some rapids. I imagine that is rather exhilarating if you're on a boat for the first time. We went back to the car and headed on out where a pilot car seemed to be just waiting for us. The drive out was fabulous with views of the cliffs. We made a few stops along the way. The first was at the nice campsite where we had a view of the river as some of the boaters made their way down the rapids : rambo : (yep, got a movie and pictures but from quite a distance). We took plenty of pictures and as were driving, I stuck my camera out the window to film the beautiful rock hillsides.

We finished our trip off with an R2R2R ;) . We once again saw the boaters as they crossed beneath the bridges in the muddy Colorado. Prefer the blue water for pictures but it's still quite the area. We spent some time at the gift store before heading to Cameron and home.

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
