This is a set of pictures that I took while floating Desolation Canyon in late August 2002. The pictures are ordered from the top of the river to the bottom. There is well over a hundred pictures in this set. I present them in blocks of twenty.

We had three boats...a 16' raft and a 10' raft. I was in an Inflatable Kayak. We saw a great variety of wildlife along the shores including bears, wild horses, bighorn sheep, blue herons and the every illusive "feral cow."
