Grand Canyon National Park - 1/3

Three Perfect Days in the Grand Canyon

Western River Expeditions
really knows how to roll out the red carpet, or in this case the roll with the Colorado River!   What an incredible three-day journey we had rafting thru The Grand Canyon.

From the thrill of the helicopter flight up the river to our board our "J Rig" Rafts, to the shrimp cocktail and grilled steak for dinner, it was first class all the way.  We ran the whitewater rapids, learned the geology of this unique area, saw Native American pictographs, jumped from cliffs into 60 degree water, hiked to a travertine grotto and waterfall hidden deep within the canyon walls and slept under the stars at night.  More about all of that in my next post, but first things first...

A huge thank you to our incredible guides! 

Evan, Sammy, Kurt and Johnny were experts in keeping us safe, while having an unforgettable and fabulous time.  From 5 am til dusk they worked together to provide a 
"bucket list" experience for all of their guests.

delicious steaks for dinner.
Our wake up call was from Johnny with a
blow thru the conch shell and then the eagerly awaited
call of "Hot Coffee!"
