the all-seeingeye Green River, Utah 1978

Introduction

My grandfather organized a whitewater rafting trip on the Green River when he was 68 years old. I suspect he guessed correctly that this was about the last time we'd all be able to get together like this, as all of his grandchildren were growing up.

Breakfast on the shore.

Dozing on a flat stretch of water. The only parts of me to see the sun for four days were my chin and the back of my hands-all of which blistered by the end of the trip.
