Desert Road Trip 2014

That storm we saw the tail of in Death Valley had ravaged Southern Utah. Our shuttle driver (where do they find these genuinely friendly rangers?!) couldnt help but tell us about the hiker theyd just lost to the Virgin River. He told us too about the guys buddy, who had gone against the posted advice & swum out. I have a favorite author who does crazy stunts like that so Ive read a pretty vivid description of swimming in a flash flood. More like dodging boulders & praying (perhaps for the first time) for mercy. Theyre right to tell you not to do it but this poor guy... yeh, we werent gonna do the Narrows anyway.
