The River Trail

These photos were taken along the River Trail which runs along the south wall of the inner gorge between the black and silver bridges.

1. Jeff on the black bridge.

2. There was a lot of helicopter activity the first two days we were there.  This morning, they were hauling sand and dumping it into a "container" that will apparently be used for sewage treatment.  In this photo there is a bucket at the end of a long tether.

3. Here is a close-up of where the sand was being dumped.  These guys are waiting for the next load.  They spread out the sand after each dumping.

4. No doubt this butte has a name, but I don't know what it is.

5. Looking toward the black bridge from near the silver bridge.

6. The silver bridge.

7. Standing on the silver bridge looking toward the black bridge.  The Colorado River rages below.
