1/26/11 - Leeches!
Ah, yes. Don't want to forget the one _small_ annoyance, which interrupted the fun of our second canyon. Don't want to forget Galen's squeal of discovery nor the panic in Margaret's voice as she repeatedly failed to prise the bloody parasite off him...
And as we soon discovered, there were _lots_ of them...
Once we reached the canyon, put on wetsuits and got in the water, we were safe. But we knew they'd be waiting for us on the hike out...
|Just inflated the"lilos" - now it's time for fun.|
|Three technical canyons entered the river along the length we swam - they were quite tantalizing! This is the mouth of Serendipity.|
|The mouth of Whungee Wheengee was incredibly dark and narrow! I so wished we had more time for exploration!|
|Waterfall of Moss ends in an abseil, so we couldn't explore this side canyon.|
|This is the view from the hike out at sunset|
|The Eucalyptus were especially pretty in the afternoon light.|
