The Desolation Canyon trip hit all the marks we needed: workable location, just enough challenge, splendid scenery and wildlife, agreeable water and air temperatures. The guides' level of professionalism and competence was superb. There was never a question that we could depend on them or that we were safe in their hands. All of them went out of their way to make it a great experience. And, the food was really good .I would highly recommend Western River Expeditions; they do it right!
