Three Springs

MILE 215.5

We had lunch at Granite Park, just above 209 Mile Rapid, and then floated down to Three Springs. We checked out, but didn't stop at, Pumpkin Springs.

There was a short, hot hike to the stream at Three Springs, where considerable energy went into making multi-cheek butt dams. From there we were able to walk downstream a hundred yards or so to where the side canyon abruptly ends at the Colorado - some rocky ledges of Tapeats Sandstone overhanging an awful lot of fast moving water. We could look across the river at tonight's camp.
