The Grandeur of It All . . .




Ten days and nine nights floating the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. Put in at Lee's Ferry, take out 226 river miles later at Diamond Creek.
With the incomparable Gary Ladd as our workshop leader and the incredible guides and crew from Arizona River Adventures (AZRA) at the helm, a cast of crazy strangers bonded into a tight knit community over ten hot, dry, wet, cold, silty, dirty, dusty, & hilarious days.
Exquisite light, extraordinary side canyons, waterfalls, adrenaline-pumping rapids, gorgeous rocks of all sizes and colors, literally geology writ large brought to life in the myriad photo opportunities everywhere you turned.
I can't begin to put in words how it all looked, felt, tasted, sounded, smelled; how it resonated in the hearts of everyone on the trip. You'll just have to go someday yourself to truly understand.
Gary, Jed, Rico, Steph, Drifter, Aaron, Barry, Larry, Sandy, Belinda, Laurel, Drew, Suzanne, Alexa, John, Don, Roger, Elmer & Mary, Darragh, & Crista: thank you, thank you, thank you. To quote an overused line: "I had the time of my life!"
