Trip on the Colorado

On March 2nd, our friend Cathy took us on a jet boat ride (cruise) on the Colorado River.  It started at Martinez lake and went up 32 miles on the river.  Weather was perfect and we had a great time.

An old miner’s cabin, all built out of rocks found in the desert.  Quite impressive for the 1800s.


Then we stopped for lunch at Norton’s Landing. Historic steamboat site that once was a mining town, again in the 1800s.  The tour operators/owners give $25.00 of each registration to bring 4th graders on a camping trip to Norton’s Landing.

MJ wants to know what this glass container could contain.


Thank you Cathy for a fun and exciting day.

  1. You are most welcome. Yep - it was one of those great days alright. I think beer would go in the glass container, but then I am partial to hops.
