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
