Rafting, Day 5

Rafting, Day 5
As we were nearly out of the gorge, there weren't many really large rapids left. There were still some good medium-sized ones, though, which were entertaining if you were sat on the side of the boat.

After a short period of rafting we had a stop off at Blacktail Canyon (no pics) where we saw the Great Unconformity - two adjacent layers of rock with over a billion years between their ages. So the rest of the rock in the middle (present in other areas of the canyon) must either have eroded here or else never have been deposited.

A billion years is a very long time, even for rocks.
