Extreme Air Mattress

September 4, 2010

On our last hike in Aravaipa Canyon, we got this goofy idea that we should hike up the canyon with inflatable air mattresses and see if we could FLOAT down.

Everybody — absolutely everybody — told us it couldn't be done. WELL ... they were partly right. There are lots of sandbars and shallows, and we hike-a-rafted as much as we floated. However, the sections that were floatable were highly entertaining. Almost as entertaining as not knowing we were a week early for our trip (Patrick the ranger kindly did not bust me).
