A Dory Enters Hermit Rapid

 

Hermit Rapid is one of Grand Canyon's Most Exciting Rapids

 

Although the Waves are Big, Hermit is Not Technically Difficult to Run

 

The Colorado River is Brown as a Result of Upriver Storms

 

Flashfloods in Upriver Side Canyons wash Mud & Silt into the main Channel which is then Carried Downriver

 

Usually, because of the Glen Canyon Dam 110 River Miles (168 Km) upstream, the River is Emerald Green

 

All the Silt that once made the River a Constant Dark Brown is now Trapped Behind the Dam

 

 

Colorado River Water is Cold because the Water Released by the Dam comes from deep within Lake Powell
