I had to ask for the day off, and find a babysitter to go down Westwater with my hubby of three years. Honestly, I was scared. I'd never been down Westwater before and from what I understood it could kill you if you didn't hit the holes right. This was the first time Shanon had been down in our raft, EVER. I told Ben and Shanon on the way up that if I didnt make it out alive that the kids had to know how much I loved them. They were to be told every night before they went to bed how important they were to me.
There are stories about the alcove we are seen in here. Apparently two robbers set up camp here,
These are their two beds.Eventually, they both became paranoid and one ended up killing the other for fear of the other stealing their half of the gold.
no one is allowed to take or leave anything from this monument.
Ben taking an innapropriate picture, and me making it okay....
The rock behind us in this picture is called Vishnushist and can only be found in this canyon and in the Grand Canyon. I think there is one more place but it slips my mind right now.
It turns out I had nothing to worry about. With the terrible winter last year the water was very low.
Even though Marriage is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, I am so glad I married this man.
