Canoeing on the Colorado

Shower time
Originally uploaded by ebygomm
After a very warm night camping alongside Lake Mead we had an early start ready for our canoe trip, we hired a canoe from Desert Adventures which included the shuttle service and the relevant permits - great service

We put in just downstream of the Hoover Dam and spent the day paddling nearly 12 miles downstream to Willow Beach(map). Along the way lots to see, caves to paddle in, hot springs to shower under, the cool (12 degrees C) water of the Colorado to dip into when we got too hot.
