We will be climbing Coffee Grinder. It's not named Coffee Grinder because the 1st ascentionists had coffee that morning! It is the wide dark crack in the center of the photo, where the rock color changes from reddish brown to grey.
Memorial Day Weekend rafting trip down the Arkansas River, Colorado. Left to right: Kim, Me, Matt (who flew in from TX for a week), Matt (who use to be from TX), and Sarah (Matt's girlfriend, fortunately not a Texan)
I did this same trip last year, same weekend, with Matt & Sarah. It was overcast, raining, and cold the entire day. This trip was so much warmer! The water level was so high that they closed the river to commercial rafting that afternoon. Good timing!
The two Matts further below. Soon after the current Texan, Matt, decided he'd gone high enough. Texas isn't exactly known for it's elevation. Denver Matt, my old roommate, stayed behind at the top of this slope due to his dog injuring his paws.
