Through a Canyon

[Lake Powell USA]

I don’t know how to climb back into a kayak if I capsized it, and this water is freezing because is early in the season. Vertical walls mean I am continually noting the last place I have been where I could theoretically swim the overturned kayak, climb out of the water onto the rock, and get back in. There aren’t many of these places.

There is no way to fall out unless I do something stupid like reach behind myself for a camera and lose balance.
