hillis_michaelSummary: HH and MH Recall a 1956 Colorado River trip in aluminum boats between Hite and Lee’s Ferry not long before Glen Canyon Dam flooded the area. Adventures in cooking with mud, flipping boats. Making Gulch Juice with Lemon Globules and other stuff. Getting passed by Wilderness Club members in canvas kayaks. MH recalls HH taking away a rattlesnake he’d found in a canyon before allowing him on the boat (imagine!).
