Susan in the Bushes!


After hearing all about the flood early Sunday morning in the Supai part of the canyon, I thought I would show you the rapidly- moving water behind me. I worked my way to the river side of these bushes, stood on a rock that was not 6-inches away from that water and tried to get a better angle upriver. Tom snapped my photo. Just so you know, that was one of my "Alaska" shirts!
I really do feel badly for all those people who had to be evacuated from the canyon, as narrow and deep as this was in this canyon, I can readily see how dangerous that could get when a flash flood happens. So, I am thankful this is a photo of me in the bushes instead of hanging from a rope, being carried up by a helicopter!

Adventures are so much fun. Glad he got your picture and glad you had steady footing, too.

It is amazing the places we will go and the angles we will place ourselves in to get that shot. Glad you are safe. The stuff on the news looked pretty scary.

Susan... you are one brave women to be out there photographing. I think I'd be too freaked out about rattlesnakes (lol)

Carol, Since I was born and raised in Arizona I have a VERY healthy respect (okay, fear!) of rattlesnakes so I was being very careful of where I stepped and it took me awhile to work my way through that foliage being so careful. To be honest with you, though, I feared falling in that swiftly moving water so close to my left foot. Might have ruined my camera!
