Hance Rapid located about mile 76.75 on the river is the first big rapid in the Canyon with some more technical maneuvering. This view of the top of the rapid with a flow of about 7500 cfs was taken in October late in the afternoon. Usually I'm a bit too preoccupied to enjoy the rapids more visual qualities but on this trip we were camping at the beginning of Hance and had time and was without the usual thoughts and feelings when I'm scouting Hance.
