cathedral, jellykris, cliff

Our last day at Powell was full of fun. Cliff jumping was on the list, not one of my favorites. Being pregnant took me off the 'must do' list.
After the jump.
Kurt and Kate back for one more.
Cruising up Cathedral Canyon
Super tall cliffs.
Green and orange, a pretty good combo.
Gparents and babies
Lunch in the boat routine.
sSwimming up the end of the canyon.
Couldn't get much farther than this.
Coming back to the boat.
While we were gone my mom discovered these jellyfish looking things in the water. She was kind of scared to swim back to the boat.
She showed us where they were and Kate, Kandis and me camped out (for a few minutes) in order to spot them. We captured one in a plastic cup to check it out (image left below). It was about the size of a contact lens. We dubbed it 'the jellykris' after my mom. I googled freshwater jellyfish when we got home and found out they do exist called Craspedacusta sowerbyi. The image to the right is what I found on the web so I knew we had a match. How cool is that!!! An exciting find for the day, go mom!

Lake Powell looks like it was a blast! You look awesome rocking the maternity swimsuit btw. What a fun family tradition. So if you ever come south you'll have to give us a heads up. I don't think we're planning anything real soon, but it would be fun to check out Atlanta.
