Icebergs in Cataract Canyon
Please accept my apologies for the condition of the pics - they are old and dirty, but the story they tell is unique. It took us three days of dodging icebergs to float from Potash on the Colorado side to Spanish Bottom, then we made a three day loop to the Doll's House, Fins, Maze, Beehive Arch and back around to the northwest side of Spanish Bottom before rafting the rapids Cat at about 7,000 cfs. The big surprise was that Lake Powell was frozen over, big time, and we had to find a way to climb out of the canyon and hike to our cars at Hite. Don't give up until you get to this point - these are outrageous pics. Each one is about 50 kb and there's minimal text so they upload to your computer quickly.
