2013 Photos of The Year - Water

Picking my favorite photos of the year is always difficult, but especially for 2013, since I didn't get as many days on the river as I would have liked. In fact, most of the photos were taken on the Grand Canyon, where I shot nearly 4,000!

Okay, let's get started with the local stuff first:
