We just returned from our Western River Expedition 6-day adventure down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.
Since our return, we have been searching for the right adjectives to describe our trip. Simply put, there are not enough superlatives that sufficiently describe our experience in the Grand Canyon and with WRE. We experienced nothing but flawless communication and execution from the minute we booked our adventure 18 months ago until the day we left the WRE crew at Mile Marker 187 on July 13th.
The only way to see, smell, touch and taste the Grand Canyon is to travel with Western River and have Lutke, Darling, Noonie and Scotty talk (and sing) about their passion and love for the Colorado River and Grand Canyon. They explained the geology and history of the canyon while we rafted and ran the rapids in the intimacy of the canyon. Hiking the “stair-master from Hell” to the top level of Deer Creek Falls or jumping from the water fall at Elves Chasm is an unforgettable experience. “Hold on tight!” “Don’t fall off!” “Everyone’s gonna get wet on this one!” “Suck rubber!” “Last call for the Groover!” Are phases we will never forget.
Experiencing the Grand Canyon from the river beats seeing the canyon from the rim any day. We'll be back on the river soon with WRE! After all, it is the Grand "Frickin" Canyon"!
A unforgettable journey of 188 miles from Lake Powell to Lava Falls.
Combine your Grand Canyon rafting adventure with a day and night at a working cattle ranch.
