Redwall Cavern is one of those places that pictures simply cannot do justice. Located along river mile 33, Redwall Cavern is a ginormous ampitheater carved by high river flows into the Canyon's limestone walls. From afar, the cave looks deceptively small, especially compared to the towering cliff above it. It's not until you get out of the raft and start walking into the gaping expanse, and keep walking and walking, that you realize just how impressive it is. John Wesley Powell estimated that it could hold upwards of 50,000 people. Modern estimates are considerably smaller, but this sandy cavern is still large enough to play an epic game of baseball or frisbee.
If you look closely at the rocks near the entrance of the cavern, you should be able to spot fossilized marine creatures within them. What's more, if you happen to find yourself in the cavern during a downpour, stay dry under the immense overhang and watch as sheets of rain begin to pour down over the mouth of the cavern, forming some pretty spectacular waterfalls. Redwall Cavern is just one of the many awe-mazing sights to explore on a Grand Canyon Whitewater vacation!
