    Distance: 6.0 miles

Today we began hiking down Dragon Creek to Crystal Creek, then down Crystal to the Colorado River.  The hiking was easy but rock-hopping for 6 miles was tedious.  But there were no major obstacles to deal with and the grade was constant all the way to the River.

Today was really a nice day.  We got to the river early in the afternoon, which gave us plenty of time to relax and clean up.  The only "problem" was the aircraft noise.  We are in the Dragon Flight Corridor and the air traffic was loud and almost constant.
