Last year I went to the Grand Canyon with my older daughter and her husband, and we were looking at the Canyon from above. I was mentioning that I always wanted to float the river. And my daughter looked at me, and she says, “Mom, if you’re going to do that, you’d better do it, because you’re not getting any younger.” And I said, “no I’m not.” my husband was sick for a long time. He passed away about three years ago, and it just seemed like the right time for me to go on an adventure. I couldn’t find anybody to go with me, and decided to just jump in, and do it myself. So, here I am.
I like the experience of having new adventures, and broadening my horizons, you know? We stopped at Travertine Falls, that place is just unbelievable. There was a special bonding of all of us that went. When we first got in there we were just so in awe, I’ll remember that always. It’s a special part of the trip. I love the rapids but that, I think, was my favorite.
This is a place my husband would have loved to have seen. When I get home, I’m going tell my girlfriends all about it. I’m going to show them pictures. I’m going to get them all revved up, so that they’ll wanna come.
