Norma letting us know that she is ready to take off, we left shortly after this. I think she was getting cold in the river, the sun was starting to go down some. Norma and Kevin just finished a 2 1/2 week rock hounding adventure, so they were ready to go home.

Kevin letting us all know what to do, and having fun.
