    This makes me want to visit more than any other nature image you’ve posted. Can you get out to the ridge?

    There’s a lot of “depends” in the response. Depends how much water they are letting out of the dam at that point. If they’re letting a lot out you would have to swim, if not you might be able to wad pretty easily. Are you willing to swim? It’s a few miles below the dam so the water is cool and if it’s high enough to swim the current is really very mild. Mild enough I’d canoe upstream on the Colorado in those conditions. I’m not sure how far you’d have to swim, might be a hundred feet or two, I can’t remember where you can get to before the cliff cuts you off. You could also jump off the cliff above, which hopefully I’ll have a cool pano of at some point (dam software issues), but that’s like a 100 yard drop.

    I will say, any which way, that location is on Erin and I’s favorite hike out here. Arizona Hot Springs (which we’ve never made it to due to a missing ladder, and frankly, aren’t all that concerned about) via White Rock Canyon. It’s a great hike and if you two are up for it we’d love to show it to ya. You can read all about it at the link below.
