Day 6, Grand Canyon Horsethief/Butte Fault route, Lava/Chuar Camp. I awoke on Saturday morning hoping this was the day I'd get a ride in a boat across the Colorado River to continue my itinerary. I had been waiting on the beach since 2:30 on Thursday afternoon. I kept telling myself, "One of these times, you'll look up and there's going to be a boat there". And then at 10:30 am, there they were - a whole trip full of boats! I flagged them down and the trip leader, John, said he'd be happy to take me across and take my cache bucket out with him. Even got a bonus ride through Lava/Chuar rapid on his sweet cataraft! John deposited me on the beach at Palisades and I told him I'd make sure to rate his Uber service five stars! I hiked up to the top of the rapid to connect my steps, then spent the afternoon relaxing and playing in the big sandbar before heading over to Tanner Beach for the night.
