|Arizona's "America the Beautiful" Quarter - The Granaries at Nankoweap|
There are many side canyons and deltas that make up - and lead to - the Grand Canyon. Marble Canyon represented the beginning of our river adventure, beginning at Lee's Ferry (River Mile 0) and transitioning to the Grand Canyon at RM62. It is a beautiful area, where the Colorado river ran clear, where we experienced our only rain of the monsoon season, and where we were able to get ashore on a few occasions for fun and some cool hikes.

The granaries were used by the ancient Anasazi Indians to store seed and protect them from vermin and rot.
