The canyon walls, desolation, sounds of nature were all exactly what you’d expect of such a trip. What made the difference from good to great, was the river guides! The young men that catered our trip went above and beyond to make this experience worry-free. From their call to coffee to our end-of-day family meetings/deserts it was a class act. Their exuberance for their jobs and life, in general, was felt through their smiles and camaraderie with each other, which, spilled over to the group.
I was taken back to the times of my youth spent camping, rafting, and hiking with friends- many of which are no longer with me. A huge thanks for stoking the fire within, to tune out and turn on to more outdoor experiences!! See you next year!! (The pic is of our guides rising to start the day)
