My Spiritual Experience in the Grand
I was 19 when I went. My dad and I are painting contractors and we did a job for WRE in their Salt Lake office. Everyone I met from this company were down to earth and very good people. They made it possible for our whole family of limited means to experience something truly incredible. This is so much more than a whitewater rafting vacation. There are things down in the Grand Canyon that you will never see, hear, touch, taste, or smell anywhere else on this planet. For me it was almost a spiritual experience. And 20 years later I still can't forget. Nor can I forget the guides, and the food they made us. For 20 years now I've been trying to make a steak that good, and I'm convinced that it can't be done outside of that canyon. I now believe that because those steaks were located down there, they became blessed. As if every little detail of their preparation was being orchestrated by a higher power, and the guides next to their grills were mere instruments. Their every move guided by divine authority.
If you're someone who doesn't like facing your fears, there are some moments on the Colorado River where you won't have a choice. The ominous and overwhelming power of God shakes your being to its core, and dispels the stupor that our modern, technological society has plagued you with.
I'm now saving up to take my wife and kids, my new family on this journey. We are all sleeping, tax-paying, law-abiding citizens who need to be woken up.
