'My hiking group of six had a precipice trail section to walk, one boot

width wide above 75mile canyon, a sheer slot canyon below with a slight

talus slope. Focused we proceed. I followed my surefooted son. The trail

traverses back for a mile and then descends down into the bottom of 75

mile. We walked down the rocky side canyon floor glowing in desert

colors. We rejoin the river at Neville’s Rapid. Above the green and white

water, an incredible layering of rock is angling up…seeming to grow out of

the river. I look up stream. I look down stream. I take an extremely

wide-angle photo. I’ll want to paint this someday. No time linger - we have

Papago Wall and Slide to navigate. Just beyond, our final campsite at

Hance Rapid, 2 miles down-river.' artist statement by Betsy Menand
