The Desolation Canyon Dream Team!
Every part of our Desolation Canyon trip exceeded expectations. Being completely disconnected from technology and surrounded by the beauty of nature for five days was so refreshing. Sleeping under the stars at night is something we will always remember. The food was top-notch. It was truly astonishing the surprises the guides kept pulling from the rafts each day. By far, the greatest gift of the trip was the guide's interaction with our kids and the connections they went above and beyond to build with each of them. We truly had the dream team of guides.
They helped them build forts to sleep in, make friendship bracelets, amused them with riddles, constructed castles in the sand, taught them about guitars and whittling, played games, and made wreaths from wildflowers for their hair. They showed them how to steer the rafts and entertained them with life-changing stories and jokes, and floated down the river with them at camp. They were such fun that our kids want to go back again to have the opportunity to spend more time with each of them. There are so many aspects of this trip that will linger with us and continue to impact our children for years to come. It is truly an amazing family trip that we would recommend highly.
A big thank you to Western River Expeditions and to our exceptional guides Emmy, Lily, Hannah, Meg, and Calvin for an experience we will never forget.
