The Glory of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon

The phrase trip of a lifetime is one that may sometimes be overused, but it's not an exaggeration when I tell you that my recent trip down the Colorado River with a dozen extraordinary friends who also are exceptional photographers was truly the trip of a lifetime! 

From the thrill and excitement of the River's rapids to the extraordinary sights of the canyon to the legendary boatmen and women guiding us to the joyful friends, this trip has been one for the record books!

Here are a few of the images captured with my iPhone and my Fuji X-E2 mirror-less camera. I plan to have more of these up on Flickr in the coming weeks. I hope you enjoy them.
