9 Runs of Lava - Colorado River

Nine rafts run Lava Rapid on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon during late November of 2008. Probably around 8-9000 cfs. One swimmer, one bump into 'Cheese Grater Rock'. No major carnage. My first YouTube video post. Experimenting with high quality full screen uploads. The HD version 'stutters'/audio not synched.

Jeffe's first flip in Grand Canyon left run Lava Falls, trip number 116, eaten by Humpback Chub.mov
Left run closing out... close to too low. I hit the big breaking wave at its peak well, but get surfed right... into Humpback Chub's left side. The Chub curls and dumps on my stern behind me. I don't see it, and get thrown out. My passengers get thrown to the low side, and the boat flips. I right the boat and get one passenger in before Son of Lava, but have a hairy ride thru SOL. Fortunately, the boat does not hit the wall, and all are fine except for my broken nose.
