We got back hauled up the river by @kayakthecolorado.07.22.21 : Explored a secret little permit-only area of Vermillion Cliffs National Monumenr.

This is the Redwall Bridge about 2.8 miles and 2,100 feet down from the rim.07.20.21 : Saw some crazy rain and thunderstorm action while at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Second pic was later that evening with clear skies.
