14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Floating down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon
I took this photo while on a 16-day rafting trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. At the start of the trip, the waters of the Colorado are a vibrant shade of green, and the canyon walls grow taller around every bend as you drift further down through the layers of geological history.
