Adventure of a Lifetime!
This trip was an incredible experience! We had a wide range of ages: 76 down to 13 and everyone of us had fun! Our guides: Shad, Stephanie, Stephen and Scott really set the tone for the whole trip. They were fun, helpful, cheerful, knowledgeable and made The Best camp coffee! The food was great (we had lots of boys with big appetites and we were all able to eat as much as we wanted 😊)
The Colorado River and the Grand Canyon were incredible but the side trips were just as amazing-my favorite was Havasu Canyon! I'd go again for sure!
Western River has done a pretty good job of creating a packing list but something they don't mention is the absolute necessity of starting the trip well-hydrated. We had a family member struggle with dehydration along with a little heat exhaustion and figured out that if she had been drinking more before she actually started the trip and had worked harder to stay cool during the first afternoon she wouldn't have been up the first night throwing up (definitely not fun!). We kept her hydrated and wet for the rest of the trip and she did fine and had fun.
