    • Socotwa text: Dedication

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • Dedicated to: MERLY, CAPTAIN STEVE, and all my fellow River Rats with whom I spent eight of the most wonderful days of my life.
    • Socotwa text: page 001

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • The second weekend of June may have seemed quite ordinary to the rest of the world, but to a select few, excitement was afoot. In various Salt Lake homes (to be revealed later), people bustled about airing bed rolls, buying lip balm, cleaning...
    • Socotwa text: page 002

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • everyone did, where they were from, who they were, how they stood state-wise, and what they looked like. The last two we could remember, but the rest had to be relearned at later meetings. As we paused in Provo, two cute girls in red bandana...
    • Socotwa text: page 003

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • For the second time that day, Frisby became the national pastime, but eventually with the philosophy that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, we played baseball too. Bob Parry, an experienced Rat, knew that the back seat of the bus made a most...
    • Socotwa text: page 004

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • began counting the number of times we crossed the wash, but gave it up as a lost cause. We saw a live bunny. We ate more of our lunches. We lost one straw hat to Emily who threw it over the cliff' into the ravine. We stampeded some cattle, saw two...
    • Socotwa text: page 005

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • Toward the end of the trip for the day, we more confidently tackled the Ticaboo Rapids, and a few turns later, rounding a bend, we saw the glorious majesty of Tapestry Wall before us. Our first camp awaited our arrival. Enthusiastic and courageous...
    • Socotwa text: page 006

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • boats; the girls now were acquiring the knack of rolling sleeping bags up small, and were even able to calm straggling hair. Suddenly shouts sent our glances toward the river where one of the rafts was being carried toward the center of the...
    • Socotwa text: page 007

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • With the "Shasta" tied securely, we shoved off into the constantly flowing river. A long and interesting day lay ahead of us. Just four miles downstream we made (or we should say four crews made) the landing at Smith Fork. A short hike through...

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • the rest of the hike back to the boats, the fellows alternated carrying him pickaback to avoid infection. To his delight he received the gentle undivided attention of Judy and Marilyn to boot. Upon our return to the landing, we found that we were...
    • Socotwa text: page 009

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • river, we carefully scanned the cliffs, sky, and water for objects of interest. In our survey we noted: three blue herons, majestically soaring above; five puffy little clouds; the honey-combing of the swallows' nests at the tops of the walls; and...
    • Socotwa text: page 010

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • woman who wished additional design on the walls of her home. Down the cliff a little ways a full-fledged dig was in process - a number of potsherds and pieces of siliceous minerals used for making arrow heads were found, and Dick actually picked up...
    • Socotwa text: page 011

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • After the supper had vanished, and while we all washed our plates, cups, and utensils with the cool mud of the creek bed, a roaring campfire was built; and, as the blaze died away, and the embers glowed brightly, the entire group sat around,...
    • Socotwa text: page 012

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • The day ahead was to be rather long, and spiced only by one stop at a previously unexplored canyon. But we were told of many landmarks and points of interest to keep our eyes on as we drifted down the River of No Return. This particular aspect of...
    • Socotwa text: page 013

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • light red limestone which we saw for the remainder of the trip. The walls of the canyon were lower, but no less rugged than they had been previously; and our experienced eyes could now more quickly sight the tell-tale talus of an abandoned mine. We...
    • Socotwa text: page 014

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • all the crews to return, we made loblollies on the beach and watched the frogs which fearlessly sat next to us. Stan had succeeded in breaking down the sand bar on one side so that the jump across the little stream and the giant loblolly was a...
    • Socotwa text: page 015

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • camp ground was solved by a bucket brigade, and before long the 36 assembled for the hike (or as much of it as you felt your exhausted body could take) to the Hole in the Rock. Merly abandoned the customary trail because of the very dense growth...
    • Socotwa text: page 016

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • meaningfulness of this spot. Though we wished to linger there in the breeze and the quietude we had found, in order to get down to the camp before dark, we had to begin the descent. On the way down each of us collected film boxes, candy wrappers,...
    • Socotwa text: page 017

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • amphitheater of the Music Temple. Exploring about, we found the names of Dellenbach, Stewart, Powell, and others, and dates back to 1871. Quietly we gathered by the edge of the dark blue pool, led there by the sweet echoing melodies Merly played...

    • Glen Canyon (Utah and Ariz.); Rafting (Sports)--Colorado River (Colo.-Mexico)
    • rope broke; and after grappling with the muddy bank and water chest-high, they arrived looking for all the world like official river rats. Other crews, too, had been pressed against the muddy banks; and the shirts which had been so white that...
