We took a shuttle bus to the farthest stop on the route (at Temple of Sinawava), then took the 2 mile Riverside Walk to where the path ends in a true “river walk”. See proof below.
This is what we saw at the end of the path
OK, I'm coming back
Others will see the canyon narrow to 20ft up ahead
We sloshed back from the Narrows and finished our hike at Weeping Rock. In case you didn't know, wet shoes are REALLY heavy.

Carol under the Weeping Rock overhang. It's "crying" all around her.
There are fires to the northwest. Dark smoke clouds moved over the park late this afternoon. We're assured there's no risk here.
This Bavarian camping tour bus was parked near us. The front half had standard tour bus seats, the back half had sleeping accommodations. Cooking accessories were in storage compartments below. Carol went to say hello and discovered everyone spoke German. Their conversation was pretty short.
