Eight deer attempt to cross the Colorado near
Phantom Ranch at dawn. Water level is high
(brown) due to a flush from Glen Canyon Dam.
Two lead deer manage to get past the main turbulence
The remaining six get washed downstream
Deer spread out as they get further downstream.
Four deer make it to shore. Two are washed out of sight.
